Peoria County has a Board-Administrator structure. The 18-member board (one representative per district) has a peer-elected chairperson and delegates the day-to-day duties to a hired administrator who supervises various county departments. The Board meets the second Thursday of each month at 6 p.m. at the Peoria County Courthouse.
The business of the County Board is conducted through the committee system. Each of the seven standing committees is responsible for oversight and budgetary control of its assigned areas. The committees report their activities to the full Board each month.
Every two years the Board reorganizes, selects a new chairperson, new committees and updates its rules. A condensed version of the Rules of Order is included on this site; a hardcopy may be purchased in the County Board Office.
