The Board of Commissioners welcomes your interest in Hertford County Government and believes that the County is better served when there is a broad representation of volunteer Hertford County Citizens on our boards and commissions. It is the Board’s desire to reflect wide-range participation in appointments, including male and female, persons from all geographic areas of the county and persons representing diverse racial and age groups. Some boards and commissions are created by the authority of the NC General Statutes and may require designated skills or training as specified by regulation. In such cases, the Board of County Commissioners must appoint persons who meet those guidelines. Reappointment is not guaranteed and subject to state statute, Board policy, or the Board’s decision in a particular instance.
