BOC Meetings

One of the best ways to learn what is happening in your county is by attending a Board of Commissioners Business Meeting. During these meetings, the board considers items ranging from budgetary issues, to road issues, to grants and local programs. The Clayton County Board of Commissioners encourages citizens to attend Business Meetings so that they can get to know who their commissioners are and what is going on in the county government.

The Board of Commissioners hold regular meetings on the first and third Tuesday of each month at 7:00 p.m. in its Boardroom located at 112 Smith Street, Jonesboro, Georgia, unless postponed to a subsequent date by action taken at a regular meeting. Meetings shall be open to the public. The Board of Commissioners may also hold such additional meetings as shall be necessary. Whenever any regular meeting of the board shall fall on a holiday, the meeting shall be held on the following day. All zoning meetings shall be conducted at night beginning at 7:00 p.m.

The agenda is prepared by the Clerk. The deadline for getting an item placed on the agenda is close of business on the Wednesday before the next meeting. Anyone wanting to be placed on an upcoming agenda should contact the Clerk at (770) 477-4550 or Assistant Clerk at (770) 477-3210. Anyone placed on the agenda must provide written documentation on the issue by the deadline.

The Board welcomes public comment; however to manage available time, public comment will be limited to three minutes per speaker at each regular business meeting and work session of the Board of Commissioners, however in no event shall the public comment period last longer than thirty (30) minutes at any single meeting.  At the end of the thirty minute public comment period, if any member of the public who has signed up to speak has not been reached, that person shall have the right to be carried forward to the next regular meeting of the Board and shall be placed at the top of the list at that meeting.  The public comment period will be placed on the agenda following any proclamations or presentations and before the Director’s report.  Any member of the public wishing to make comment must sign up with the Clerk prior to the call of the meeting.
