Jackson County's government is called a commission-manager form of government. The County is governed by five elected part-time commissioners. The Chairman of the Board of County Commissioners is elected at-large and the other four commissioners are elected by district. The commissioners appoint a full-time county manager to oversee the day-to-day operations of the County, advise the board, and implement commission policies.
The County Manager serves as the Chief Administrative Officer of the County and provides support to ensure that all ordinances, resolutions, projects, initiatives, goals and objectives of the Board of County Commissioners are properly coordinated and executed. The County Manager is also responsible for preparing and monitoring the annual budget.
