Board of Commissioner Minutes

One responsibility of the County Clerk is to maintain the official minutes of the meetings of the County Board of Commissioners. Meeting minutes become official once they have been approved by the majority vote of the Commissioners at the subsequent meeting. These minutes will be available on the county web site beginning with the minutes of the October 24, 2006 meeting. The minutes are posted in Adobe Acrobat format, and require the free Adobe Acrobat Reader in order to access them. Get minutes here.
