What is a County Commission?

A county commission is a group of elected officials charged with administering the county government in some states of the United States. County policies will have an impact on the lives of its citizens, and for that reason those citizens expect county commissioners to influence the direction of county government. The board of commissioners is the oldest form of county government in America.
