Board of County Commissioners

Board of County Commissioners


The Board of County Commissioners is Alamosa County's governing body. There are three members of the Board, each elected to four-year terms. Terms are staggered so that no more than two commissioners are elected at the same time. The Board is charged with setting policy to guide county programs that serve residents and businesses in Alamosa County.

The Alamosa County Board of Commissioners typically meets the second and last Wednesday of each month. Please check the meeting calendar here or with the County’s Administrative office for meeting dates. A comment card submitted in advance of the meeting is required in order to speak during the public comment periods. You must include valid contact information and a summary of your statement. Submit a comment card here.
