About the Commissioners
The Commissioners serve on a four-year term, whom are elected by the general public. They make up the general administrative body for county government. They are the county government budgeting, appropriating, and purchasing authority. The Commissioners hold title to county property. Individual commissioners have no power to act independently. All formal and official actions must be taken by the board of county commissioners acting as a body by quorum (majority) or unanimous vote.
Duties & Responsibilities
Commissioners have many other responsibilities including hearing and deciding on annexations, approving drainage improvements through the petition ditch process.
Commissioners also appoint department heads of offices for which they have responsibility and also appoint members to a variety of boards and commissions, and also serve on some of the boards such as the board of revision, the county records commission, and the planning commission.
Commissioners must work with all other county elected officials and with judges to assure that they are properly funded to perform their statutory duties. But it is the non-statutory duties of county commissioners that make them different from other county elected officials.
More of the Board of County Commissioners duties and responsibilities are outlined in the Ohio Revised Code.
The Wyandot County Commissioners meet every Monday and Thursday of the week, with the exception of holidays that fall on those days. Visit the Commissioners' Meetings page for more information and the schedule.
