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.

The board meets the 2nd and last Monday of the month at 1 PM.  The Board may also hold special meetings to deal with unique situations as they arise. 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 at each meeting so citizens may present their concerns. The public is encouraged to participate.  You may request advance notice of regular & special meetings of the Board by requesting such notice, in writing, through the County Clerk.
