Board of County Commissioners

County commissioners make up the general administrative body for county government. They hold authority for government taxing, budgeting, appropriating, and purchasing; and they hold title to county property. However, eight other elected officials, the judiciā€ ary, and several independent commissions possess executive authority for their offices.

In 1963, the Hamilton County Board of Commissioners created the appointed office of County Administrator to manage Board policies and prepare the County budget.
