Board Policies

Board Policies

The Board of Supervisors has adopted a series of Board Policies which guide the Board in its conduct and interaction with the public, various County commissions and committees, and persons and entities that may do business with the County. Officials and employees who conduct the business of the County are acting on behalf of the Board, and are so directed to abide by Board Policies.

Board Policies are adopted by resolution under authority granted by the Constitution, State codes, and the County Charter, and policies are not set by ordinance, nor are they legally binding. The Board reserves the right and may opt to vary from one or more of the Board Policies when and if the Board deems such action necessary and in the best interests of the public.

The Clerk of the Board​ is responsible for maintaining and distributing copies of the Board Policy manual, and inquiries regarding the manual shall be directed to the Clerk of the Board.
