About the Council

As the elected legislative body of the County, the Council has the exclusive power to enact, repeal, and amend all public local laws. Legislation must take the form of ordinances, which are advertised and come before the Council and the public at their bi-monthly legislative sessions. The Council also entertains resolutions for many administrative issues. 

The Council is the final fiscal authority of the County, sitting in May in review of the proposed County Budget and adopting the final Budget.

Additionally, the Council sits as The Board of Health twice a year.

Each Councilmember has a Legislative Assistant who works with the Councilman to assist their constituents with a wide variety of problems and issues.
