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.
