What is the Board of Supervisors?
The Floyd County Board of Supervisors is comprised of five Board members, representing the five electoral districts of the County. Supervisors are elected for four year terms on staggered two year intervals.
Terms begin on January 1 following the elections in November. At the annual organizational meeting, the Board elects a Chairman and a Vice Chairman and establishes the calendar of meeting dates for the year. The Chairman and Vice Chairman continue to be voting members of the governing body.
Regular meetings are held the second Tuesday of each month at 8:30am and the fourth Tuesday of each month at 7:00pm in the Board Room of the County Administration Building, 120 West Oxford Street, Floyd. Adjourned or special called meetings are scheduled when necessary. All meetings are open to the public. A Public Comment Period is held at each regular meeting.
The Board may go into closed session to discuss matters inappropriate for discussion in open session (i.e., personnel, economic development or litigation issues). No votes or action may be taken in closed session. Following the closed session, the Board must adopt a resolution certifying that no other items of business were discussed than those which were previously announced.
The Board of Supervisors has both administrative and legislative responsibilities, some of which are discharged in the role of the local governing body and some of which have derived from its function as an administrative subdivision of the State. The powers and duties of the Board of Supervisors include:
- Preparing the County budget and appropriate funds
- Levying tax rates
- Appointing members of various Boards and Commissions
- Construction and maintenance of County buildings
- Adopting and enforcing ordinances for law enforcement, sanitation, health and other regulations as permitted by State law
- Adopting the County’s comprehensive land use plan and approving/enforcing related ordinance
