Counties within the United States serve as political subdivisions of state government and were established to assist in the local administration of state functions. In 1902, the Alabama Constitution granted governing authority to County Commissions to establish county government to rule by committee as detailed in Code of Alabama 1975, Title 11. The Elmore County Commission consists of five elected members who serve four year terms and represent one of five districts in the county. The five members of the commission elect a chairman from amongst the Commission, and the chairman appoints a vice-chairman to serve in his or her absence. A majority vote is required to pass any policy so that no Commissioner has authority separate from the body of Commissioners. A County Commission in Alabama only has authority to regulate itself. Other actions such as the power to pass zoning, taxation or any ordinances require state legislation.
The Commission approves all budgets and disbursement of funds for the Sheriff’s Department, Probate Judge’s Office, Revenue Commissioner’s Office, County Highway Department, and Emergency Management Agency/Homeland Security Office. Furthermore, all grants and contracts for the County are approved through the County Commission. The County Commission also appropriates funds to other agencies and non-profit organizations that provide services to the citizens of Elmore County. The Commission also supports education, economic development, agriculture and tourism in Elmore County. The budgets and audit reports for the County Commission are available for review on the County Administrator's page.
Under the Code of Alabama, County Commissions are responsible for administration of law enforcement, construction and maintenance of roads and bridges, recording of legal papers, property and license tax collection, and indigent care. The Commission serves as the custodian of all County property and provides office space for the Circuit and District Courts, District Attorney’s Office, Veteran’s Affairs, Board of Registrars, Board of Equalization, and the Elmore County Extension Office. The Commission also assists in administering elections by establishing voting districts and precincts, providing voting equipment and paying for election expenses.
