The Douglas County Board of Commissioners (BOC) is assisted by a number of advisory commissions, boards and committees. These groups are comprised of county residents and report directly to either the BOC or to individual county departments.
- Generally speaking, the terms board, commission and committee are interchangeable as applied to the names of these bodies. The groups vary in size and responsibility. Some bodies are created for a specific length of time, while others are ongoing in their assistance to the BOC.
- In addition, commissioners make appointments to a variety of other authorities and boards throughout the county, which serve in advisory capacities for specific projects, services or facilities. These operate outside the direct supervision of county government.
- Certain qualifications are required to hold positions on some boards, commissions, committees or authorities.
- Please contact the County Clerk, Lisa Watson, with any questions regarding board membership at 770-920-7416 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
