The Board of Commissioners is made up of five individuals representing five different districts throughout Hamlin County. Members of the board are elected for a four-year term and take on many tasks while serving. These tasks include... adopting the county budget, acting as human resources for employees, setting employees' salaries, passing county ordinances, appointing county officials that are not elected into office, overseeing public concerns, reviewing zoning issues and so much more.
Board members represent all citizens of Hamlin County and are the citizen's voices in the county government. Therefore it is encouraged for all residents to keep them informed and up-to-date with any questions or concerns that might arise. Residents may do this by contacting their district representative or coming to Board of Commissioner meetings, which are held at least twice a month and always open to the public (except for executive sessions required under state law). Agendas are posted online and at the courthouse at least 24 hours before the beginning of the meeting.
