County Commissioners

Role of Commissioners

The five commissioners are the chief elected officials of the County. Their primary role involves the approval of the county budget. This process allows the commissioners to assess county operations for both efficiency and effectiveness.

The commissioners establish these priorities when they levy a county tax on the towns and cities which are part of Cumberland County. The commissioners also provide representation on numerous boards and committees in furthering the goal of inter-agency cooperation.
