It is the mission of the Jones County Board of Commissioners to exercise the powers, duties and responsibilities vested in and imposed upon it as the duly constituted governing authority of Jones County. The Board sets direction and formulates policies for the county government and entrusts the leadership of the county administrator to adhere to and enforce such policies and to ensure provision of the highest quality services to both its internal (employees) and external (citizens) customers. The Board embraces the opportunity to respond to the needs and concerns of the citizens; and to conduct business in an open and professional manner.
The commission meets in regular session twice a month on the first and third Tuesdays at 6:00 p.m. Commission Zoning Hearings are held the first Tuesday of the month beginning at 6:00 p.m. with the regular session meeting immediately following. Commissioner Committees meet on an as needed basis.
