Board of Commissioners

The 7-member Board of Commissioners is the governing body of the County, which is divided into 7 equally populated districts. Each district holds approximately 2,000 residents. Each Commissioner is chosen through an election to serve a single district for a two-year term of office.

The powers and responsibilities of the Crawford County Board of Commissioners include:

  • Establish and formulate county policies
  • Establish annual county property tax millage rate
  • Adopt ordinances and rules
  • Adopt annual county budget and long-range capital improvement program
  • Adopt the county development plan
  • Adopt and enforce rules establishing the authority, duties and responsibilities of county departments and offices

The Board operates under a committee system. There are three  standing committees:

  • Law Enforcement
  • Personnel and Labor
  • Way’s and Means

These committees facilitate the many items of business for which the Board of Commissioners is responsible by reviewing information and making recommendations for consideration by the entire Board.
