Commissioner Appointed Boards & Authorities
The Board of Commissioners is responsible for appointing members to various Boards and Authorities. It is vital to the operations of Fayette County departments, offices, and agencies that Boards and Authorities have members who are mindful of their duties, responsibilities, and role. Independent thinking members serve the residents of Fayette County best.

Please watch for information in the local newspapers, in local media coverage of the Commissioners Meetings, and listings to this website to learn when vacancies occur on a particular Board or Authority.
For the most part, the terms for the Boards expire on December 31 and the terms for the Authorities expire the first Monday of January; however, because some terms are staggered, there may be a vacancy on a particular Board or Authority within a given year.
