Mission

County Commissioners are elected officials who oversee county activities and work to ensure that citizen concerns are met, federal and state requirements are fulfilled, and county operations run smoothly.

Mandates and Key Activities

  • The Cook County Board of Commissioners is the governing board and legislative body of the county. It is comprised of 17 Commissioners, each serving a four-year term and is elected from single member districts. Each district represents approximately 300,000 residents.
  • The Board of Commissioners is responsible for the management of the affairs of Cook County.
  • For each fiscal year, the board must adopt a resolution, termed the “Annual Appropriation Bill” in which the board appropriates funds for the operations of the County.
