Woodbury County Board of Supervisors Assignments


Liaisons from the Board act as a two-way conduit of information both to implement Board policy and direction as well as to keep the Board informed and involved concerning each Department. While each supervisor is assumed to have an “open door policy,” the proper procedure for dealing with concerns is to channel them through the appropriate supervisor. In this way, supervisors can divide their time and focus in the most productive manner.
