The Board of County Commissioners, created by the State Constitution, is composed of three Commissioners elected by the people. The County is divided into three districts, as equal in population as possible and numbered 1, 2, and 3 respectively. One Commissioner is elected from each district. District boundaries are set once every 10 years following the federal census.
At the first meeting of the Board every January, the Commissioners elect one of the current Commissioners to serve as Chairman for that calendar year. The Chairman’s primary duty is to preside at the meetings of the Board. The Chairman is also one of two officers that may sign checks (known as “warrants”) issued by the County Treasurer.
