The Board of County Commissioners is the chief administrative and policy making body of Lawrence County government and consists of eighteen members. Boardmembers are elected to four-year terms. Lawrence County is divided into 18 Districts with each district electing 1 Commissioner.

The single greatest responsibility of the Board is control over the County's finances. Every fiscal year the Board must adopt a budget which appropriates funds to the many departments and agencies of the Lawrence County Government; and, at the same time, provides sufficient revenue to meet these appropriations.

The Board of County Commissioners serve as the legislative and policy setting body of Lawrence County. As such, the Board enacts all legislation and authorizes programs and expenditures within Lawrence County.

The Board chooses a Chairman to serve during the 4 year term. Committees are formed with a Chair Person designated for each committee. The Commission has the authority to establish committees whose membership can include non elected members.


Regular Session Meeting Schedule: The Lawrence County Board of Commissioners meet in regular session bi-monthly, on the third Tuesday of the month at 5:00 PM at the Lawrence County Commission Meeting Room at the Lawrence County Courthouse. The Board of Commissioners provide the general public time before each regular session meeting to address the Board on issues that affect our county. The public's input is very important to the Board and feedback is encouraged.

Committee Meeting Schedule: Throughout any given month, the Board of Commissioners hold various committee meetings. These meeting dates and time will be published in the local paper and also posted to the calendar on the front page on the County's Official Website.
