The Douglas County Board of Commissioners (BOC) is assisted by a number of advisory commissions, boards and committees. These groups are comprised of county residents and report directly to either the BOC or to individual county departments.

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.

Listed here are different boards, commissions, committees and authorities with a brief Description of their membership, prescribed functions and the length of terms for each group.
