Boards and Authorities
The Macon County Board of Commissioners is assisted by a number of appointed boards, councils, commissions, committees and authorities.
Generally speaking, terms such as board, council, commission, committee and authority are interchangeable in county government. 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, who serve in advisory capacities for specific projects, services or facilities. These operate outside the direct supervision of the county government.
