Boards, Commissions, Authorities
The Habersham County Board of Commissioners is assisted by a number of appointed boards, councils, commissions, committees, and authorities.
Generally speaking, terms such as board, council, commission, committee, and authority are interchangeable in county government. The groups vary in size and responsibility. Some bodies are created for a specific length of time, while others are ongoing in their assistance to the Board of Commissioners.
In addition, Commissioners make appointments to a variety of other authorities and boards throughout the county, region, and state, who serve in advisory capacities for specific projects, services, or facilities. These operate outside of the direct supervision of the County government.
