DECATUR COUNTY BOARD OF COMMISSIONERS

Decatur County is governed by an elected body collectively known as the Board of Commissioners. The Board meets regularly in a public forum, to discuss, receive input on, and vote on, current “open” issues. The County’s administrative staff and day-to-day operations are managed by County Administrator Alan Thomas, who works closely with the Board of Commissioners to ensure that effective communication is maintained between the Board and the staff.

The Board of Commissioners meets twice a month, on the second and fourth Tuesday. Each meeting is held at the County’s Administrative Office building at 203 W. Broughton St. in Bainbridge and is open to the public. The meeting on the second Tuesday of each month is held at 9 a.m. and the one on the fourth Tuesday of each month is held at 7 p.m. For those wishing to speak at a commission meeting, or present an issue to the commission, there is a requirement that requests to speak be submitted to the Decatur County offices in writing at least one week prior to the scheduled meeting at which the person wishes to speak, so that the meeting agenda can be properly planned. Also, a citizen may sign-in with County Clerk Beverly King before the beginning of each meeting but the speaker will be limited to five minutes when addressing the Board of Commissioners during “Public Participation” phase of the agenda.
