Board Of Supervisors
Board of Supervisors

Buffalo County is under the Supervisor-Township plan of County Government. The County is divided into seven districts. A person from each district is elected to serve on the County Board by the voters in that district. 

County Supervisors serve terms of four years each. A Supervisor may serve as many terms as he/she wishes. The Supervisors terms are staggered - four Supervisors are elected in one election year and the other three Supervisors are then elected in the second year.

A Supervisor must be a resident of the district they are elected to represent. If they should move away from their district during their term, they must resign their seat on the County Board. The annual salary for a Buffalo County Supervisor in 2014 is $19,385 with the Chairman of the Board receiving $21,785. The Supervisors are also allowed a mileage expense of $.56 cents per mile when conducting County business away from their home.

By law, the County Board is required to meet only once a year, which is on the 2nd Tuesday following the first Thursday in January. The Buffalo County Board chooses to conduct its meetings on the second and fourth Tuesday of every month.  These meetings begin at 9:00 a.m. and are open to the public.  Minutes from each meeting are published in the Kearney Hub.  During the first meeting of each year, the County Board elects a Chairman and Vice-Chairman of the Board.

In general, the County Board is the representative and guardian for the County. The County Board is the agency, which in official matters, acts for and on behalf of the County. The County Board derives its functions from the Legislature and its powers are prescribed by Statutes enacted by the Legislature

Buffalo County is an Equal Opportunity Employer. We invite you to read our Affirmative Action Plan.
