With this in mind, Douglas County acts through its Board of Commissioners This three-member board acts, by majority vote of a quorum present, to adopt ordinances in those limited areas for which specific authority has been given by the State Legislature, and to adopt resolutions to conduct all of its other business.
The Board of Commissioners performs legislative, executive, and quasi-judicial functions and serves as the legislative, policy-making, and administrative body governing the unincorporated areas of Douglas County.
The Board appoints a County Manager who implements the policy directions of the Board and supervises and coordinates the work of the staff in the Departments under the direct control of the Board. Apart from the County Attorney, the County Manager will have line authority over all County divisions under the Board of County Commissioners.
The County Attorney is a constitutionally prescribed County office. By statute, the County Attorney is a position filled by appointment of the Board. The County Attorney’s Office provides legal advice and representation for the Board. The County Attorney, with the approval of the Board, also advises and represents all other Douglas County elected officials, the County Administrator, department and division heads, and appointed commissions, boards and committees.
