Idaho > Idaho County Commissioner's Records

The Board of County Commissioners in each county has the responsibility of supervising the conduct of the officers of the county. They also were and are responsible for the establishment of ordinances governing that county.

Shortly after the establishment of each county, a Board of County Commissioners was established and began meeting. Minutes of those meetings were recorded. Most have been preserved in the county courthouses of the State of Idaho from the formation of the county to the present. Some counties now post the minutes of current meetings online.

The minute books of the County Commissioners contain interesting tidbits of history about the county as well as the names of individuals appealing to the County Commissioners for action on issues of concern to them.
