Departments » Boards and Commissions
Generally speaking, the terms board, commission and committee are interchangeable as applied to the names of these bodies. The groups vary in size and responsibility. Some bodies are created for a specific length of time, while others are ongoing in their assistance to the BOC.
In addition, commissioners make appointments to a variety of other authorities and boards throughout the county, which serve in advisory capacities for specific projects, services or facilities. These operate outside the direct supervision of county government.
Certain qualifications are required to hold positions on some boards, commissions, committees or authorities.
To the right of this narrative is a list of Boards, Commissions, Authorities, and Committees and their duties and responsibilities.
