Yes, County Commission meetings are public meetings. Meeting notices and agendas must be posted in advance. State statutes identify certain topics, such as labor negotiations, that a County Commission may consider during an executive session, which is closed to the public.
Most County Commissions have between three and nine County Commissioners. County Commissions always have an odd number of Commissioners to prevent tie votes. Some examples of single member Boards of Commissioners exist, but these are very rare.
Rules vary, but generally a sitting Commissioner cannot apply for and be hired for a position within the county they serve. Some jurisdictions may allow for an existing employee to run for County Commissioner.
