COUNTY GOVERNMENT STRUCTURE

Dare County has a county commission-county manager system of government. A seven member Board of Commissioners sets policy and a county manager, appointed by the Commission, executes policy directives. Commissioners are elected to four year terms, some of which expire each even-numbered year.  All Commissioners except one at-large seat must reside in a specific district. Each Commissioner is elected in a county-wide election. The Board elects a chairperson and vice-chair for a one year term at its organizational meeting in December.

The Board has countywide responsibility for educational funding, libraries, Parks and Recreation, Emergency Medical Services, and tax assessment. The Board is the sole governing body for the unincorporated areas of Dare County including Colington, Martin’s Point, Manns Harbor, Stumpy Point, East Lake, Wanchese, northern Roanoke Island, and all of Hatteras Island. In these areas, the County is responsible for planning and zoning, solid waste management and law enforcement.
