About

The Jackson County Board of Supervisors is responsible for the management of county government and a number of special districts. The five supervisors are elected by district to four-year terms by the citizens of Jackson County. There are no term limits. Board members serve residents in districts of different geographical size, but each district has approximately equal population.

Board's Primary Duties

  • Adopt an annual budget
  • Establish the annual property tax rate
  • Set policies, goals and objective to direct the County's growth and development
  • Adopt and provide for ordinances, rules and regulations as necessary for the general welfare of the County
  • Carry out other responsibilities set forth by Mississippi State statutes

At the beginning of each year, the Board chooses from its members a president and a vice president to serve during the following year. The president presides at Board meetings and signs documents in the name of the county. The vice president substitutes when the president is absent.

Board & Commission Appointments

The Board of Supervisors is also responsible for appointing members to a number of boards and commissions that serve the Jackson County communities.
