Commissioner Duties

Responsibilities


The Board Of County Commissioners, created by the State Constitution, is composed of three Commissioners elected by the people. Each Oklahoma County is divided into three districts, as equal in population as possible, with one Commissioner elected from each district.

Administration


The three-member Board of County Commissioners is the administrative body of the County, with general supervision over all fiscal affairs. The Board meets on the first Monday of every month and every Wednesday thereafter, except on holidays or on special occasions. The Board may set special meetings on 48 hours notice. All sessions are open to the public and held in observance of the Oklahoma Open Meeting Act.

Leadership


At the first meeting of the Board every January, the Commissioners elect one of their own to serve as Chairman for that calendar year. The Chairman's primary duty is to preside at the meetings of the Board.
