Making decisions that can shape the course of life in Clark County for years to come is not an easy process. Thatís why, before they decide an issue, Clark Countyís commissioners get extensive input from community members through citizen advisory groups, town hall meetings, one-on-one conversations, and through other means.
Elected to four-year terms by the citizens of Clark County, the three commissioners provide legislative authority for Clark County. Together, they form the Board of Clark County Commissioners and are responsible for:
- Adopting the biennial budget
- Developing and implementing planning and zoning policies
- Making citizen appointments to advisory committees and boards
- Adopting all county ordinances
By state law, some land-use decisions, such as some hearings examiners findings, may be appealed to the Board of Clark County Commissioners.
