Elected from five separate districts, the Miami County Board of County Commissioners is the policy-making body for all county governmental functions. The chairman and chair pro-tem are appointed yearly by the commission members.
The board typically meets for study session prior to the regular meetings on Wednesday afternoons. Beginning and end times of the study sessions will vary from week to week.
The purpose of a study session is to allow adequate time for staff reports and commission discussion and review of specific public policies and issues. No decisions are rendered in informal sessions. All meetings are open to the public and news media representatives.
The commissioners are in the office at other various times throughout the week. Staff is available to assist constituents and/or take messages during business office hours.
