PURPOSE: The Board of County Commissioners has many varied responsibilities.  In order to effectively use their time, the Board finds it necessary to divide duties and responsibilities among the Board members.

 

POLICY:

  1. ASSIGNMENTS: At their first annual meeting each year, the Board of County Commissioners determine each Board member's assignments and responsibilities for the year.  The assignments include:
    1. Chair and Chair Pro-tem
    2. Boards and Commissions Primary Liaison Assignments (reference A)
    3. Colorado Counties Inc. (CCI) and Counties & Commissioners Acting Together (CCAT) Committee Assignments
    4. Other special task force or committee assignments
  2. Chair and Chair Pro-tem: The positions of Chair and Chair Pro-tem are determined by a vote of the Board.
  3. Board and Commission Primary Liaisons:
    1. Each County Board and/or Commission will have a Primary Liaison from the Board of County Commissioners, with the exception of quasi-judicial boards.  The Primary Liaison serves as the main contact between the Board or Commission and the Board of County Commissioners.  The Primary Liaison may attend Board or Commission meetings as requested or at the discretion of the Primary Liaison.  The Primary Liaison is not expected to attend all of the meetings of any Board or Commission to which they are assigned.
    2. Nothing in this policy should be interpreted as limiting access to any Commissioner at any time or interpreted that the Primary Liaison is the only communication point wit the Board of County Commissioners.  The purpose of a Primary Liaison is to simplify communication and to effectively use the time of the Commissioners.  Board or  Commission Members are free to contact any Commissioner to discuss county issues at any time, if communication with the Primary Liaison is not possible or desirable, for any reason whatsoever.
  4. CCI and CCAT Committees: CCI and CCAT Committee assignments will be made annually.  Commissioners may assign their CCI committee vote and responsibility to a staff proxy, at their discretion.
  5. Other special task force or committee assignments: Note: Other special task force or committee assignments will be made by the Board as needed.
