Montrose County is governed by a three-member Board Of County Commissioners (BOCC) as mandated by the State Constitution. The commissioners are elected at large, though they represent the district of the county in which they reside, for four-year staggered terms.
The BOCC provides leadership and vision in guiding Montrose County government. It is the policy-making body of County government, and as such it is charged with overseeing the organization and budgets of a wide variety of County programs to benefit citizens.
In addition to its broad fiscal responsibilities, the BOCC:
Makes appointments to various community boards and commissions
Acts as the Board of Equalization, Board of Social Services, Liquor License Authority, and Board of Health
Sees that the laws regarding County government are followed
Appoints the County Attorney, who serves as legal counsel and advisor to the County
Appoints the County Manager, who assists the BOCC in carrying out its duties
