Board of Commissioners

The Cumberland County Board of Commissioners consists of seven members. The Board of Commissioners serves as the governing board for the County. Its purpose is to maintain fiscal responsibility while providing mandated services as set out in the General Statutes and additional services as passed on to the County by State and Federal governments. It is also responsible for other services deemed appropriate and necessary by the Board.

The County of Cumberland operates under a Board of Commissioners - County Manager form of government. The Board of Commissioners consists of seven members, two elected from District One, which largely follows the 42nd and 43rd House district lines and encompasses a small part of House district 44; three members elected from District Two, which follows the 22nd, 44th and 45th House district lines; and two members elected at-large.

Each member is elected to a four-year term. The terms are staggered, and the members elect their own Chairman and Vice Chairman annually.

The Board of Commissioners meets two times each month, the first Monday of the month at 9 AM and the third Monday of the month at 6:45 PM. The meetings are held in the County Commissioners' meeting room (Room 118), on the first floor of the County Courthouse located at 117 Dick Street, Fayetteville, North Carolina. The meetings are open to the public. In addition, the meetings are broadcast live on Fayetteville/Cumberland Educational TV (FCETV), Spectrum Channel 5. The meetings are rebroadcast the following Tuesday at 7:30 p.m.

An agenda for the meetings is available for viewing on the Agenda and Minutes page of this site on Thursday prior to each meeting. To inquire as to the procedure for placing an item on the agenda, call the office of the County Manager at 678-7723.
