The Board of Supervisors is the executive and administrative branch of county
government. The supervisors make policy for the county, administer the various
county programs and have final authority over the county budget. Its main
responsibility is setting a county budget to meet the needs of the rural
population in the township areas and the human service needs of the entire
county. The budget process begins in the late fall and is certified to the State
of Iowa by the following March 15th. The county operates on a fiscal year that
runs from July 1 through June 30.
Carroll County elects five members to its board who serve staggered, four-year
terms. In a Presidential election year, three positions are voted on, and two
positions are voted on in the Gubernatorial Election year.
Official Board meetings are held every Monday at 9:00 A.M. at the Courthouse in
the Board Room. Meetings are open to the public.
Minutes of the Board meetings are available for public viewing
in the County Auditor's office in the Courthouse, available on the website, and
are published weekly in the official county newspapers.
Items to be placed on the Board agenda should be submitted to the Auditor's
office by 12:00 P.M. on Friday.
