Duties of the Board of Supervisors

The functions of the board of supervisors are varied and its authority embraces practically every aspect of county government. Although these functions are primarily administrative in nature, the board exercises powers and characteristics of each of the three branches of government: executive, legislative, and judicial. For example, the board fills vacancies in county offices by appointing successors, fixes rules relating to the use of county buildings and grounds and determines the disposition of claims against the county. The board acts as a general business manager for county government, plays a major role in matters of county taxation and finance, and is the governmental authority responsible for the construction and maintenance of the county road system. In some areas the duties of the board are nominal, while in others they are extensive.
