Minutes and Agendas

The agendas and minutes for County Commissioners, County Council, and other Boards and Commissions listed on this web site are provided as a service to our citizens. Efforts are made to make agendas (when used) and minutes available as soon as reasonably requested.  When minutes are provided in “draft” form, citizens should not rely on the information to take action until such time as the official minutes are approved in a public meeting.  Questions about minutes and agendas may be directed to the Office of the Dearborn County Auditor at (812) 537-8807.
