Board of Commissioners

The Board of Commissioners is the County’s general governing body, but it shares authority over many governmental functions carried on at the County level with other elected county officials and several semiautonomous boards and agencies. The board’s major responsibilities lie in three functions

  • establishment of overall fiscal policy through its taxing and spending powers,

  • regulation of private conduct through its ordinance-making powers, and

  • general administration.

The Board of Commissioners also approves appointments to many Committees and Boards that govern and/or advise the services provided in Montgomery County.:
