The Commissioners are active advocates for the community on many issues including Forest lands, water and land use issues.
The Board typically meets every Monday and Tuesday in the Courthouse located at 625 West 4th Street, Newport, WA. During the COVID-19 pandemic, meetings may also occur on Thursdays. Meetings are open to the public. Public Comment is at 4:00 p.m. every Monday. The Commissioners and their terms are listed along with their email link and contact information.
