The Board of County Commissioners is the chief legislative body in the County. The Board meets on the first and the third Monday, from 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM, of each month in the Commissioners Room (Suite 2-H) of the Steuben Community Center. Meeting dates are subject to change due to scheduled holidays and the Commissioners' schedules. The three County Commissioners are elected for four-year terms by the voters at large and represent the geographical district in which they reside. The Board approves the County budget, adopts local ordinances and resolutions, and establishes policies which govern the County to insure the health, safety and welfare of its citizens.
