The goals and objectives of the Clay County Board of County Commissioners directly relates to its mission to provide for the quality of life, safety and health of the County's citizens. The Commission is committed to a vision of a better tomorrow and the best possible today to make Clay County a place we can all be proud of. The Board of County Commissioners is the law-making body of the county operating under the Home Rule charter since 1991. Charter powers address self-government which can not conflict with general law or special law approved by the voters of the County. The County is governed by a five member Board elected as single-member districts for terms of four years. Specifically designated government functions are performed by separately elected Constitutional Officers who are elected county-wide. These elected Constitutional Officers and Commission members comprise the elected officials responsible to the voters of Clay County. The Commissioners have no authority over the Constitutional officers, officers appointed by the Governor or over the County School Board. In this role, the Board annually adopts a budget for the operation of County government as well as the funding of capital programs, such as road paving, drainage projects, and construction of facilities designed to provide better governmental services to the citizens of the County. County services range from indigent health care to public branch libraries, from recreation to road, bridge and drainage maintenance, from building permit issuance and inspections to fire and rescue.
The County Commission believes that one of its greatest resources is its employees. Only from a sound professional government work force can productivity be improved for better service delivery. The County will continue to reward and encourage professional efficient action by its employees!
