Kanabec County Board of Commissioners

County Board Members and Information

The Board of Commissioners is composed of five members each representing a geographic district of the County. They are elected to four-year staggered terms.

The Kanabec County Board of Commissioners officially meets on second and fourth Wednesdays of each month. Meetings are held in the County Board Room, on the ground floor of the Kanabec County Courthouse in Mora, Minnesota, unless otherwise noted.

Each Board member also serves on other committees in specialized areas such as library, corrections, regional development and other advisory boards. Board members invest considerable time following up on a wide variety of constituent concerns.

All meetings of the full Board (regular, special, emergency and adjourned) are open to the public.
