Board of Commissioners

Role & Responsibilities

The Ottawa County Board of Commissioners provides leadership and policy direction for all County activities. The Board is comprised of 11 members elected every two years from districts of equal population. The Board has established four, five-member standing committees:
  • Finance and Administration Committee
  • Health and Human Services Committee
  • Personnel Committee
  • Planning and Policy Committee
Meetings of the Board of Commissioners and its Committees are open to the public. The Board meets the 2nd and 4th Tuesdays of each month at 1:30pm in the Board Room at the Administration Building: 12220 Fillmore Street, West Olive. The Board Rules contain more information about the structure and dynamics of meetings. Each meeting opens and closes with an opportunity for public comments. Since comments are limited to three minutes per person, it is helpful to come prepared and be succinct. You can also contact your Ottawa County Commissioner at any time. Their contact information is listed below. If you are unsure which district, precinct or ward you reside in, this map can help.
