Term: 4 years
The three-member county commission is both a local government and a subdivision of state government. The primary responsibility of both the commission and each individual commissioner is serving as the general purpose local government and legislative authority outside city limits. Many county responsibilities are mandated by state law; others are permitted by state law, allowing considerable local discretion. The commission is responsible for county policies relating to public safety and health, community development, human services, environmental protection, solid waste, county finance, transportation, parks and recreation, and other state legislative directed duties.
