As a citizens' committee studies possible changes to the Barrow County government structure, citizens can get more info about the county structure online.
Barrow County was created on July 7, 1914 by an act of the Georgia General Assembly. That original legislation has been amended multiple times over the past century to establish the county’s current form of government.
To read the provisions that are the subject of the ongoing review, go online to www.municode.com and search the “Municode Library” for Barrow County’s Code of Ordinances.
The applicable provisions are under “Part 1 – Special Acts of the General Assembly.”
Of particular importance are those that address the balance of power between the BOC and the chairman.
The powers and duties of the board of commissioners are in Section 2.
The powers and duties of the BOC chairman are in Section 7.
