The Charlevoix County Commission is the elected governing board of Charlevoix County. The Commission is responsible for setting policy, paying bills, and general (as opposed to day-to-day) oversight of the County’s overall goal and vision. Members are elected from districts of the county, which are decided with each census by population and geography. The commissioners then elect a Chair and Vice Chair.
Regular meetings of the County Commission are held twice each month unless a special meeting is called. In the event of a special meeting, the public must be given due notice prior to the meeting.
