Counties are political subdivisions of the State and often considered the purest form of local representation. Daggett County is governed by the Board of County Commissioners as outlined in the Utah State Code Title 17 Chapter 53.
Commission Responsibilities and Functions
The Commission is a three member Board that has executive, legislative and judicial functions as allowed by State statute. In addition to these functions, each member of the Commission has specific areas of responsibility. A listing of the 2012 Commission Responsibilities can be found in the Document Center. Decisions are made during weekly Commission Meetings held on Tuesdays. Public Hearings and meetings are held as needed to receive input from county residents. Although these responsibilities are great, Commissioner positions are considered part-time.
Commissioners are Elected Officials
