Randolph County employs a commission form of government, the oldest and most traditional county organizational structure in Illinois. The county governing body is based on an elected board composed of three commissioners who serve as the legislative body and also perform executive functions. No single administrator or executive oversees a county's operations under the commission form of government. As Randolph County's governing body, the board adopts an annual county budget, establishes tax rates, and authorizes bond issues, subject to voter approval. In a quasi-judicial role, the board reviews zoning, planning and land use matters and considers appeals in granting or denying certain permits and licenses, including liquor licenses. The county board is also empowered to establish and control special districts to provide services in unincorporated areas of the county. In order to effectively supervise the operations of the county, the board elects a chairman from its membership who serves as the head of the county government. The chairman facilitates the operations of the county board and the other departments of the county.

Meeting schedules for the County Board and all other committees may be obtained in the County Clerk's Office at the Randolph County Courthouse or click the link on the side menu. Please contact the County Clerk's Office (618.826.5000 Ext. 191) to be placed on the County Board Meeting Agenda.
