The County Board is the entity that decides the direction of the County. It determines the budgets and services to be delivered and in general is the mechanism by which services are to be delivered.
Each Commissioner is elected by district. There are five districts in the County. The Commissioners serve a four-year term and the terms are staggered. There is no limit to the number of terms a Commissioner may serve. Assigned Committees for each Commissioner.
Following the census, which is held every 10 years, the commissioners redraw the commission districts. The intent is to create districts that have an equal distribution of the population.
