Per policy of the Mecklenburg County Board of Commissioners, the Board may maintain standing committees as determined by a majority vote of the Board. The Board may also establish non-standing (“ad-hoc”) committees as determined by a majority vote of the Board. Each committee includes 4 Commissioners, with one member serving as the Chair of the Committee. Members of each committee are appointed by the Chairman.
The Mecklenburg County Board of Commissioners currently has one standing committee, the Audit Review Committee, and one ad-hoc committee, the Manager’s Compensation Committee.
- The Audit Review Committee’s purpose is to assist the Board of Commissioners in fulfilling its oversight responsibilities for the financial reporting process, the system of internal control, the audit process and Mecklenburg County’s process for monitoring compliance with laws, regulations, and the Code of Ethics.
- The Manager’s Compensation Committee meets annually to determine the County Manager’s Compensation.
