The Moore County Board of Commissioners consists of five members who are elected to serve staggered four-year terms. Each commissioner represents and resides in a district, but is elected at-large. The Board is the general governing body of the County and has three primary functions: 1) Establishment of overall fiscal policy through its taxing and spending powers; 2) Regulation of private conduct through its ordinance making powers; and 3) General administration.
The Board regularly meets twice monthly on the first Tuesday at 10:30am and the third Tuesday at 5:30pm. When a closed session is necessary, the Board may convene an hour earlier, but the public portion of the meeting would still be at 10:30am or 5:30pm, respectively. The Board does not hold the second meeting in December or the first meeting in July. In 2024, the January meetings will be on the second and fourth Tuesdays due to holidays. There is also a regular pre-agenda conference call attended by two commissioners the Wednesday before the regular meetings. Additional information regarding the meetings schedule is available on the commissioners' section of the County website, or by contacting the Clerk to the Board.
Unless specified otherwise, the Board holds its meetings on the 2nd floor of the Historic Courthouse in Carthage, North Carolina.
All meetings of the Board of Commissioners are open to the public.
The Board has a public comment period at the beginning of each meeting. Individuals may sign up to speak thirty minutes prior to the beginning of the meeting. The Chair will individually recognize speakers, who will be given three minutes to make comments. Click here for the public comment period procedures.
