The Board of County Commissioners is the primary legislative and policy-making body for Suwannee County. Each commissioner represents one of the five districts within the County and must reside within the district they seek to represent. They are elected by the county voters living within the corresponding districts and serve a four-year term once elected. The board elects a chairman and vice-chairman each year.

The commission meets on the first and third Tuesday of each month at 5 p.m. in the Judicial Annex Building (218 Parshley Street Southwest, Live Oak). During these public meetings, commissioners hear and vote on a variety of issues. Whether enacting ordinances and resolutions or approving budgets and expenditures, this board has the responsibility to provide for the safety and welfare of all Suwannee County residents.
