County Commission
Facebook Twitterprinter friendly page

Burleigh County Commissioners are elected at large on a non-partisan basis for staggered four-year terms. The County Commission is the governing body of the County responsible for overseeing County activities and working to ensure that citizen concerns are met, federal and state requirements are fulfilled, and County operations run smoothly.

The State constitution gives the Board of County Commissioners the power to adopt zoning ordinances (local laws), levy taxes, appropriations, authorize bonds, set salaries, approve bills, accept bids, approve the County budget and establish the requirements/policies for the Departments under its control.

The Board governs all unorganized townships of the County directly. The County Commission does not have control of the budgets or policies of the various School Boards.

Approximately 275 employees are engaged in the operation of the government of Burleigh County.
