Pender County is governed by a five-member, Board of Commissioners, elected at large to serve four-year terms. Terms are staggered so that, every two years, two or three commissioner seats are up for election. The Board enacts policies such as establishment of the property tax rate, regulation of land use and zoning outside municipal jurisdictions, and adoption of the annual budget. Commissioners must reside within the district they represent, however, they are elected to serve all the people of Pender County. See Map of Districts…

The Board of Commissioners meets on the first and the third Monday of each month at 4:00 p.m.

All meetings are open to the public and are held at the Public Assembly Room located at 805 South Walker Street, Burgaw, NC 28425 unless otherwise noted. Public Comment is accepted at all meetings at designated times on the agenda. Click here to view BOCC meeting agendas, minutes, and videos.
