The five-member board is the chief policy-making and administrative body or unit of the county. Each county is divided into five districts, commonly referred to as “beats”. Each district elects a supervisor who serves a four-year term.


*Work Session*

Thursday August 31, 2017

10am Laurel Board Room

The Jones County Board of Supervisors will discuss the budget, personnel policies and collecting delinquent garbage fees.


Each supervisor handles some administrative duties in their district, together the members set policy. While each supervisor represents their district, all of the members are expected to look after the good of the county as a whole.

Road construction and maintenance are the responsibility of the Board. It is a very important job to be responsible for hundreds of miles of local highways and roads. The board can also set traffic regulations for the county roads. But the board must look after many things in addition to roads.
The power to tax and the power to appropriate and budget funds are the two most significant powers the board exercises.

Board meetings are held twice a month. Meetings are open to the public. The board serves a unique role in Mississippi counties — it is the one body which supervises almost everything that goes on in county government.
