The Commissioners Role
The Executive Branch consists of three Commissioners with two commissioners elected every two years and the third commissioner every four years.  The Board of Commissioners duties are mandated by NH Statue RSA 28.  The Commissioners are part-time elected officials responsible for overall supervision of County Departments, buildings and land, and exercise budgetary oversight over all County expenditures.  The Commissioners meet the first and third Monday, of each month, with department heads to discuss old and new business.  The Commissioners submit, on a fiscal year (July 1st to June 30th), a budget to the County Delegation for approval.

The Board of Commissioners convene the first and third Monday of each month at 3:00 p.m.
