The Board of Elk County Commissioners consists of three elected representatives from various districts in Elk County.  Districts are reviewed and, if necessary, modified every few years to maintain a balance of population in each district.

Generally the board meetings are held on the 2nd and last Monday of the month at 1 PM.  See the attached schedule below for any additional dates that may arise for special meetings to deal with unique situations. Meetings are held in the county commissioners room on the 1st floor of the Elk County Courthouse in Howard, KS.

All meetings of the Board are open to the public, and a public forum is held towards the beginning of each meeting so citizens may present their concerns, we encourage the public to participate.  You may request advance notice of regular & special meetings of the Board, by requesting such notice, in writing, through the County Clerks Office.
