County commission

A county commission (also known as a board of county commissioners) is a group of elected officials charged with administering the county government in local government in some states of the United States. County commissions are usually made up of three or more individuals. In certain counties in Georgia and New Hampshire however, a sole commissioner holds the authority of the commission.
