Each commissioner has primary responsibility for one of the county's five departments and serves as an assistant in another. The five departments are communication services, health services, planning services, engineering services, and finance, administration, central purchasing, and personnel. Their responsibilities rotate each year.
The board meets at 9:00 a.m. each Monday and Wednesday in the first floor meeting room at the County Administration offices, 1150 0 St, Greeley.
