Government

Mineral County is governed by a three member commission, one member to be elected every two years to a six year term of office. The County Commission, as the governing body, is responsible for the fiscal affairs and general administration of county government. The County Commission does not possess inherent rights of self government but are creations of the State with the authority to carry out those functions specified by the WV Constitution or by legislative enactment.

In addition to the Commission, voters also elect an Assessor, Circuit Clerk, County Clerk, Sheriff/Treasurer and Prosecuting Attorney. Each of these elected officials serve as the department head for their respective offices and are responsible for carrying out the duties of that office as prescribed by law.
