The Board of Supervisors has both legistlative and administrative powers and is the policy-making body of Monona County government. With its authority to adopt legislation and policies for department operations, the Board sets priorities, allocates resources and maintains budgetary control. By using the budget process effectively, they are able to monitor and correct inefficiencies in all organizational units. In addition to these responsibilities, the Board promotes and facilitates various cooperative efforts between and among other government entities and jurisdictions.

The term of office for elected members of the Board of Supervisors is four years. [Sec. 331.201(4)] The terms are staggered so that no more than a bare majority of the board will be elected in any given election. To accommodate this, elections are held biennially. [Secs. 39.18; 331.203(2)(c), .204(3), .208(4)]

The Board of Supervisors is required to hold its first meeting on the first day in January, which is not a Saturday, Sunday or holiday. All subsequent meetings are held as scheduled by the Board and must be conducted in compliance with Chapter 28A (Iowa Open Meetings Law). A quorum (majority of the Board) must be present before such meetings can be conducted. If a quorum fails to appear at any meeting, the county auditor must adjourn such meeting from day to day until a quorum is present. [Sec. 313.213(2)]

Meetings of the Board of Supervisors must be open to the public unless closed sessions are expressly permitted by law. The Monona County Board of Supervisors meets every Tuesday at 8:30 AM, except on scheduled and major holidays.
