Overview: 

Jefferson County elects three commissioners from single-member districts to staggered terms to represent the entire county. 

The Board of County Commissioners serves as the legislative and policy-setting body for county government.  They have the power to adopt ordinances (local laws), approve the County budget, and establish the requirements for the departments under its control.  The following departments are under the Board of County Commissioners:  Road & Bridge, Planning & Zoning, Building, Weeds, Emergency Management, and Parks & Recreation. 

The Board of County Commissioners generally meets on the second and fourth Mondays of each month for public hearings and regular agenda items.
