The governing body of Montgomery County is the Montgomery County Commission, consisting of five members who are elected by districts. Each Commissioner is elected to a four-year term and represents approximately 45,000 constituents. The Chairperson and Vice Chair are selected by a majority vote of the Commission.
The Montgomery County Commission's responsibilities include control of all county public funds, adoption of an annual budget reflecting anticipated income and expenses (by law, expenditures cannot exceed revenue received). Other major areas of responsibilities include construction and maintenance of roads in the county outside the city jurisdiction, providing services for all county departments, purchasing supplies and equipment related to county operations, providing a general support function for all activities being supplied by the county such as telephone support, supply support, mail processing and distribution, and employee benefit packages.
For the months of January, February and March in 2020, the Montgomery County Commission meets on the second and fourth Tuesday. The Information Session starts at 3:30 p.m. followed by the Formal Session at 5:00 p.m. For the remaining months of 2020, the Commission meets on the first and third Monday of each month. However, if that Monday falls on a holiday, the meeting is held on Tuesday of that week. The Information Session begins at 8:00 a.m., in the Commission Conference Room. The Formal Session follows at 9:30 a.m. in the Commission Chambers. All sessions are held on the first floor of the Montgomery County Administration Building, Courthouse Annex III, located at 101 S.
