Duties of this Office
In West Virginia, the heart of local governance lies within the County Commission. These dedicated individuals are elected county-wide, serving six-year terms to ensure continuity and effective decision-making. With a commitment to transparency, the County Commission convenes regularly to address the diverse spectrum of county affairs. Although state law mandates at least four meetings per year, the commitment to service often leads them to gather monthly, and in many cases, even weekly. All official meetings are convened within the courthouse complex and are open to the public, reflecting the Commission’s dedication to accountability and inclusivity.
