Board of Commissioners

Spalding County is governed by an elected five-member Board of Commissioners, each Commissioner representing a different geographic district of Spalding County.  The Board of Commissioners are charged with establishment of Ordinances and Policies relating to operation of the County government.  In addition the Board of Commissioners will act on citizen requests such as zoning matters.  The Spalding County Chairman and Vice Chairman positions are elected by the Board of Commissioners and are voted on annually.  The first official act of the Board of Commissioners at the first public meeting of each year is to elect a Chairman and Vice Chairman.
