The Choctaw County Board of Commissioners is the governing body of the county, establishing goals and objectives to direct the county’s growth and development, and carries out other responsibilities as set forth by Alabama statutes. The County Government is administered by a five-member County Commission, consisting of a Chairman and four Commissioners. Each Commissioner represents one of four districts and is elected within their respective district in the county. The Chairman is elected countywide. The Chairman serves a six-year term and all Commissioners serve four-year terms of office. The Commission oversees county operations and enacts ordinances and resolutions to promote the health, safety, and welfare of citizens and businesses in the county, and approves the annual budget and millage rate which funds the operations of the offices and departments under the Commission’s jurisdiction.
