The Board of Skagit County Commissioners is made up of three elected Commissioners who each serve a district of Skagit County. The Commissioners serve as the County’s legislative authority. They are responsible for adopting a balanced budget for each calendar year; adopting, amending and repealing all County ordinances; appointing members of many County boards and commissions; and overseeing the following public services:

  • Public roads and public works programs;
  • Public health services;
  • Planning and zoning of unincorporated areas;
  • Emergency Services or civil defense programs;
  • County park and recreation systems
  • Other services and programs, which are not clearly the responsibility of other elected County officials.

The Board of Commissioners does NOT have oversight or authority over independently elected  County officials. Members of the public who have questions or issues related to the duties or business of elected officials (Sheriff, Auditor, Assessor, Coroner, Prosecuting Attorney, Treasurer, County Clerk, or District or Superior Court judges) must contact the office of that elected official.
