Administrative decisions for the county are not made by full-time employees of the county, but by an elected governing board of three or five Commissioners. They often serve on other boards or make appointments to boards (social service board, park board, etc.) and are responsible for the county budget, county road department, social service administration, appointments of many offices, and many other county concerns.
Commissioners in 2016:
Front Row from Left: Nick Rutherford, Hetty Walker, Hugh Ralston
