Board of Commissioners Information

Commissioners' RoomThe Board of Commissioners of St. Joseph County is the legislative body and discharges its duties as required by federal and state law. It is the function of the Board of Commissioners to: set policy for the County; adopt and monitor an annual budget; equalize property tax assessments; set fees; contract for a yearly audit of all County funds; and implement the recommendations of its auditing firm to ensure the legal and efficient use of tax dollars. The Board of Commissioners appoints other boards and commissions, adopts ordinances, buys land for county use and sells county-owned property, and enters into contracts and agreements on behalf of St. Joseph County.

There are five commissioners elected by districts to serve a two-year term. Your county commissioner is your representative in county government. Your commissioner is most effective in representing your concerns at county committee meetings and Board of Commissioners’ meetings.

The Board of Commissioners meets the first and third Tuesday of every month at 5:00 p.m. in the Commissioners’ Room, third floor of the Historic Courthouse. Exceptions to this schedule do occasionally occur, please verify meeting dates with the County Calendar.
