Board of Commissioners

The County Board of Commissioners is the legislative and policy-making body of County Government in Shiawassee County. Many of their duties are specified by the Michigan Constitution and State Statute. There are seven Commissioners elected by Districts to serve a two-year term. The primary responsibility of the Board of Commissioners is development and administration of the annual budget. This includes approving the annual budgets of other independently elected County Officials, including the County Clerk, the Drain Commissioner, the Prosecutor, the Treasurer, the Register of Deeds, the Surveyor, the Sheriff, Judges of the 35th Judicial Circuit Court, the 66th Judicial District Court, and the Probate and Family Court.

As part of their fiscal responsibilities, the Board of Commissioners is responsible for developing policies and procedures to maintain public accountability and internal controls. The Board is responsible for levying property taxes, setting fees, selling bonds, and borrowing. They are also responsible for approval of all contracts, grant agreements, and personnel procedures and matters, including collective bargaining agreements. County government in Michigan places a great deal of reliance on Boards and Commissions with the management and operation of various departments. The Board of Commissioners is responsible for appointing citizen members to County Boards, Commissions and Committees. The Board is responsible for selecting a County Administrator to supervise the day-to-day operations of County Departments and determining the sites of County Buildings, and purchasing or disposing of County-owned property and facilities.
