The Board of Supervisors is made up of three members each elected to four year terms. The board annually elects one of its members to act as a chair person for the Board. The Board of Supervisors has the authority to adopt legislation, set county policies for county operations, sets county priorities, allocates the budget and resources and is only entity of county that can obligate county in contractual obligations.
The County Board of Supervisors meets regularly on Wednesday beginning at 8:30 a.m. If the agenda is not completed they will meet in recessed session on Friday at 9:00 a.m. All meetings are open to the public unless, for purposes described in Code of Iowa chapter 21, a closed meeting is necessary or advisable to protect the interests of individuals or the county. All persons are invited to take an active role in Boone County government. Agenda appointments will need to be scheduled through Boone County Auditor’s Office. You may address the Board (without an appointment) while they are in session if you are willing to wait your turn of an unscheduled agenda time.
