About the Board of Commissioners

The Board of County Commissioners is the legislative and governing body of Union County and consists of five members, elected at-large. Commissioners serve four-year staggered terms. During its first meeting of December, the Chairman and Vice Chairman are elected by and from the Board of Commissioners. In 1965, the Union County Board of Commissioners voted to choose the Commissioners/Manager form of government and appointed the first county manager.
