Brief Description:

On October 21, 2009, the Wasco County Court approved an Order abolishing the Office of Wasco County Judge and created the Wasco County Board of County Commissioners. Effective January 4, 2010, Wasco County was governed by one full-time Commissioner (Chair) and two half-time Commissioners; all positions were elected. In January, 2011 the Board of County Commissioners transitioned to three half time Commissioners with the Chair being appointed annually by the Board.

On December 8, 2009, the Wasco County Court created the Administrative Officer Position to be effective January 4, 2010. Administrative Officer Tyler Stone assists the Board of County Commissioners, leads the adminstration of County business and manages the daily activities of Wasco County.

The Board of County Commissioners normally meets on the first and third Wednesdays of each month in Wasco County Courthouse Room #302 to conduct County business. The Board of County Commissioners is not a judicial body and does not handle criminal or civil cases.
