Terms of Service & Responsibilities

Charles County is governed by a board of five County Commissioners who are elected at-large to four-year terms. The Charles County Commissioners are responsible for: raising revenues to fund the capital and operating budgets of County departments and agencies; providing for the public health, safety, and welfare of County residents; adopting and updating the Land Use Plan and Zoning Ordinance and overseeing the development process; establishing, promulgating, and enforcing County rules, regulations, ordinances, policies, and procedures; appointing boards, commissions, and task forces to advise them and make recommendations; and fulfilling the mission of Charles County Government and serving on various board and councils in the County, region, and State. The President presides at meetings and hearings of the Commissioners. The President is the only full-time position, and may reside anywhere in the County. The other four Commissioners, who each represent a Commissioner District in which they must reside, are part-time.
