Elected by registered voters residing in the county, the Greene County Board Supervisors is comprised of five members who serve four-year terms, one representing each of the county’s four voting districts — Midway, Monroe, Ruckersville and Stanardsville — and one representing the county At Large.
The Board has legislative and executive powers. It implements and, as necessary, refines the local application of state law and public policy. It is also responsible for adopting the county’s budget, and makes appointments to the Greene County Planning Commission, the Greene County Economic Development Authority, and the boards of other organizations that require or request county representation.
The Board of Supervisors meets the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of every month, unless otherwise announced, at 7:30 p.m. in the county administration building at 40 Celt Road in Stanardsville.
