Board of County Commissioners

Responsibilities


The Board of County Commissioners serves as the administrative and policy-making body for Arapahoe County. The commissioners are elected by voters to represent five districts, each divided by population. The board oversees departments, approves the budget, hires the management team, administers county services, and oversees land-use planning and development within unincorporated Arapahoe County.

Each year the board sets the budgets for all departments and offices including the offices of the other elected officials including, the Clerk and Recorder,  Sheriff,  Assessor,  Treasurer, Coroner and District Attorney. The county has 2,070 employees. 

The commissioners also represent the County on a variety of boards and committees

The Board of County Commissioners meets at 9:30 a.m. Tuesday. Arapahoe County now live-streams public meetings. Watch a meeting live from the comfort of your home or view video archives of previous meetings. You can also catch meetings and a variety of county videos via our YouTube Channel.
