Howell County Commission consists of three elected officials – the Presiding Commissioner Mark Collins, Northern Commissioner Bill Lovelace and Southern Commissioner Billy Sexton. The commission manages the county’s business, including preparing the annual county budget, approving county expenses, managing county owned property, overseeing the maintenance of the county’s roads and bridges, applying for and approving state and federal grants for the county, appointing county board members and maintaining an active role in relevant state and federal programs and committees.
The commission meets in regular session 10 a.m. to 3:30 pm. Mondays and Thursdays, except holidays, in their chambers on the second floor of the Howell County Office Building, 35 Court Square Room 302, West Plains, MO 65775.
Many of the requirements for the commission can be found in Chapter 49 of the Missouri Revised Statutes. For example, two commissioners are required for a quorum. If only two commissioners are present for a vote and they disagree, the presiding commissioner’s decision stands as the decision for the commission. If the presiding commissioner is not present, the commission clerk designates one of the other commissioners as presiding commissioner. The designated presiding commissioner will have all the powers of the presiding commissioner. (RSMo 49.070)
