The Blount County Commission meets at 9:00am on the second Monday of each month in the Blount County Courthouse. A work session is held on the Thursday preceding each business meeting, and is also at 9:00am. All meetings of the commission are open to the public.
The Blount County Commission consists of five members. Four are commissioners, each of which is elected only by the people in the respective commission district. The fifth member is the chairman.
