Under Pennsylvania County Code, the Board of Commissioners is responsible for implementing the County's budget as well as overseeing contracts and expenditures. The Commissioners are the executive governing body for the administration of County programs, personnel, property, and facilities in order to provide the highest level of service to the citizens of the County, while also maintaining vigilance with taxpayer dollars. The three County Commissioners constitute the chief governing body of the County. The Commissioners are vested with the policy-making authority to provide certain local services and facilities on a county-wide basis.

Administrative powers and duties of the County Commissioners encompass registration and elections, assessment of property, human services, veterans' affairs, 911, emergency services, operation of a county prison, personnel management, operation and maintenance of county bridges, appointment of county personnel, and budget and finance management. The commissioners are the sole contractors for the county; as such, they make contracts and purchases for all purposes expressly or implicitly authorized by law. The position of commissioner is a county-wide elected office with a term of four years. The County Commissioners sit jointly as members of the Retirement Board, Salary Board, Board of Assessment and Revision of Taxes, Election Board, and the Prison Board.
