The Board of Supervisors is the governing body of the county. One Supervisor is elected from each of the five districts in the county to serve a four-year term. The Board is responsible for adopting an annual budget, establishing the annual property tax rate, setting policies, goals and objectives to direct the county's growth and development, and carrying out other responsibilities as set forth by Mississippi state statutes. The Board appoints the County Administrator to manage the daily operations of the county.

Board Meeting

As mandated by State statute, the Board of Supervisors meets on the first Monday and the 25th of each month in the Board Meeting Room in the Chancery Clerk's office of the Amite County Courthouse. If a regular scheduled meeting falls on a holiday or a weekend, the Board meets on the closest working day. The Board also schedules additional meetings as they deem necessary to handle pertinent County business and in the case of emergencies.

Meetings of the Board of Supervisors are open to the general public.
