County Boards & Commissions

County government consists of various boards and commissions that discuss community issues related to specific areas and make recommendations to the Board of Commissioners. Some examples include Community Corrections Advisory Board, Community Services Advisory Board, Public Health Services Advisory Board and the Planning & Zoning Commission. Interested people may apply in their county of residence. Information and applications are typically available via that county’s website.
