About the Commission

The Nicollet County Board consists of 5 commissioners who are elected to set policy and make decisions which govern Nicollet County. A commissioner’s term of office is 4 years.

The County Board of Commissioners is responsible for establishing overall goals and future direction for the county. The board sets the budget for each county department, approves contracts, appoints officials to carry out resolutions and policies, and appoints citizen commissions and committees.

The County Board also approves purchases and expenditures, sets the tax levy, and develops a Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) which addresses the anticipated needs of Nicollet County. The commissioners make decisions which include county buildings and furnishings, land acquisition, computer equipment, office machines, and vehicles.
