Board Committees

Per policy of the Mecklenburg Board of County Commissioners, the Board may maintain standing committees as determined by a majority vote of the Board. The Board may also establish non-standing (“ad-hoc”) committees as determined by a majority vote of the Board. Each committee includes 4 Commissioners, with one member serving as the Chair of the Committee. Members of each committee are appointed by the Chairman.

The Mecklenburg County Board of Commissioners currently has four standing committees, the Health and Human Services Committee, Economic Development Committee, the Intergovernmental Relations Committee and the Environmental Stewardship Committee..
