The Forsyth County Board of Commissioners is assisted by a number of boards, councils, commissions, committees and authorities. These groups are comprised of board members, staff and county residents.
Generally speaking, terms such as board, council, commission, committee and authority are interchangeable as applied to the names of these bodies. The groups vary in size and responsibility. Some bodies are created for a specific length of time, while others are ongoing in their assistance to the Board of Commissioners.
In addition, commissioners make appointments to a variety of other authorities and boards throughout the county, region and state, which serve in advisory capacities for specific projects, services or facilities. These operate outside the direct supervision of the county government.
For more information about these various bodies, contact the office of the clerk to the Board of Commissioners at (770) 781-2101.
