The Board of County Commissioners is composed of five members elected by the voters through district elections for four year staggered terms. The Board, as the county's governing authority, is responsible for establishing policy for county operations, enacting ordinances and resolutions to promote the county's health, safety, and welfare, and approving the annual budget which funds the operations of the constitutional officers' as well as the departments under the Board's jurisdiction.
The Board appoints the County Manager and the department heads for the departments under the Board's jurisdiction. Those departments include the Planning Department, Building Inspection Department, Public Works Department, Parks & Recreation Department, Emergency Medical Services, Facilities, Fire Department, Information Technology, and the Utility Billing Department.
