Composed of five members, the Butts County Commission is the legislative branch of the County Government. This body enacts the laws, ordinances, and resolutions for local government and functions as a political subdivision of the State. Commissioners are elected to serve four one-year sessions in two-year bienniums. The Clerk of Butts County sets the Commission agenda and brings resolutions forward for Board approval. These are then implemented by the County Manager and Executive Staff.
The Butts County Commission meets regularly at 6PM on the 2nd Monday of each month and may also hold meetings on the fourth Monday for zoning actions or at other times when needed. The Board is currently meeting at the Central Georgia EMC Annex on South Mulberry Street in Jackson.
