            The Commission is a 10 member body established as provided by a state law.  Members include the chairman of the Road Commission or one of it’s members, the Drain Commissioner, Chairman of the Planning Commission, a member of the County Board, and six members appointed by the County Board whose terms are for 3 years which are staggered so that two members are appointed each year.  Generally at the first meeting of each year this group elects a Chairperson, a Vice Chairperson, and a Secretary to act for the Commission.  The Commission lays out the capital improvement plans for the parks.   Since the year 2000 the commission has held four meetings per year and this practice will continue.  If there becomes a need for more meetings the Chairperson will call special meetings.
