The Saline County Board of Commissioners is the governing body representing the citizens of the county. State statute authorizes the Commission to perform legislative and administrative powers and duties. The Commission establishes the budget for all County departments, elected and appointed; forges policies for Saline County to be implemented by the County Administrator, approves contracts; and enacts resolutions and regulations to ensure the public health, safety and well-being of all citizens of Saline County.
There are five (5) members on the Board of Commissioners with one (1) Commissioner elected from each of the five (5) districts. The districts are divided equally on the basis of population and in accordance with state statutes are realigned every 3 years. Four-year terms of office are staggered so that no more than 3 Commissioners are elected at any general election. Commissioners are elected on a partisan basis.
The Board of Commissioners meet at 9:00am on Tuesday in Room 107 in the City-County Building, 300 W Ash, Salina, Kansas. With few exceptions as provided by statute, these meetings are open to the Public. Meetings can be found on the County YouTube page or can be viewed by Zoom.
