What is the function of the Board of County Commissioners?

The Board of County Commissioners (BOCC) serves as the governing body for County government, with final budget authority for all County departments. Additionally, they oversee the daily operations of departments that are not directly under the authority of the other six elected officials in the County. The BOCC meet in a public meeting forum each Tuesday to take official action on County business, and conduct Planning & Zoning Deliberation meetings each Thursday morning.

The Board also sits as the Board of Equalization to consider property assessment appeals and as the Board of Canvassers for the purpose of canvassing the election returns of all precincts within the county.
