County Board of Supervisors

The County Board of Supervisors is the executive branch of county government. The Supervisors serve as the policymakers for the county and administer the various county programs. Their powers include reviewing budget requests, appropriating funds, establishing county tax levies, enacting ordinances, filling employee vacancies, and hearing reports from county officers. The Board is also responsible for overseeing economic development in the county. The Boards of Supervisors’ responsibilities are defined by Iowa Code chapter 331.  The Board of Supervisors is made up of three members each elected to four year terms. The board annually elects one of its members to act as a chair person for the Board.

The County Board of Supervisors meets regularly on Monday's beginning at 9:00 a.m.  All meetings are open to the public unless, for purposes described in Code of Iowa chapter 21, a closed meeting is necessary or advisable to protect the interests of individuals or the county. All persons are invited to take an active role in Ringgold County government. Agenda appointments will need to be scheduled through the Ringgold County Auditor’s Office. You may address the Board (without an appointment) while they are in session if you are willing to wait your turn of an unscheduled agenda time.
