The five commissioners represent each County District and are the chief elected officials of the County. The Board’s operations are conducted through committee and Board meetings, which are open to the public. One of the major responsibilities of the Board is to adopt the annual county budget as recommended by the County Manager and approved by the Finance Committee. This process allows the Board to assess county operations for both efficiency and effectiveness.
The Board establishes these priorities when they levy a county tax on the towns and cities of Cumberland County. The Board also provides representation on numerous boards and committees furthering the goal of inter-agency cooperation.
