Carroll County is governed by a Board of Commissioners, the primary policy-making body of the county. The board consists of a full-time chairman and 6 part-time commissioners representing the different districts of the county. While the full commission retains ultimate executive responsibility, day-to-day executive duties are performed by the chairman. The chairman is elected countywide every 4 years. District commissioners are elected to staggered terms of 4 years each, with 3 of the 6 being elected by district every 2 years.
The Board of Commissioners has the power and authority to fix and establish policies, rules, and regulations governing the county. Policy directives are implemented by the full-time chairman, who directs day-to-day county operations through department heads and support staff.
For a complete listing of the powers and duties of the commission and the chairman see Carroll County's Charter Georgia Law 1989, page 3,546 which is on file in the Office of the County Clerk/Information Officer.
