The County Commission is the county legislative body for Campbell County. The County Commission is composed of 15 members that represent five districts. Commissioners are elected by voters in their districts for four-year terms and must represent substantially equal populations based on the most recent federal census. Each district is represented by three members. Commissioners must reside within the district they represent and be a qualified voter of that district.
The County Commission holds workshops on the second Monday of each month, and meetings are held on the third Monday of each month. Both are held at 6:00 PM. Local media records each meeting for the public to view. If the second or third Monday fall on a government holiday, then the workshop or meeting affected will be moved to the next day.

How does the County Commission serve me?
Each County Commissioner is a representative of the population within their district. Voters elect commissioners whom they believe will accurately represent their needs in county government discussions. Commissioners look out for the needs of their district when governmental decisions are being made so that the people have a voice to speak on their behalf.
