Your county commissioner is your representative in county government. Your commissioner is most effective in representing your concerns at county committee meetings and Board of Commissioners' meetings.

The Board of Commissioners of Bay County is the legislative body and discharges its duties as required by federal and state law. It is the function of the Board of Commissioners to: set policy for the county, adopt and monitor an annual budget, equalize property tax assessments, set fees, contract for a yearly audit of all county funds, and implement the recommendations of its auditing firm to ensure the legal and efficient use of tax dollars.

The Board of Commissioners appoints other specific boards and commissions, adopts ordinances, buys land for county use, sells county-owned property, and enters into contracts and agreements on behalf of Bay County.

The Board of Commissioners meets on the second Tuesday of the month at 4:00 p.m. in the Commission Chambers on the fourth floor of the Bay County Building.
