The County Commissioners job is part-time; but in reality as an elected official they are on duty and on call 24 hours a day.

The County Commissioners duties are to stay in touch with constituents.  They speak with citizens about what they want.  For example, a road complaint, a drainage issue, complaints about taxes, etc.  These are just a few things that the commissioners address daily.

Meetings are also a big part of a commissioner's role.  Regularly scheduled commissioner's meetings, special sessions and public hearings are a part of the job.  Attending community functions such as new business opening, chamber meetings, and board meeting are also necessary.
