The Smith County Board of Supervisors is responsible for the management of county government. The board has control over local taxation, budgets, borrowing, general County policy, and the adoption of local ordinances.

The Chancery Clerk of the county serves as clerk to the board and is in charge of implementing board directives. The five members of the Board of Supervisors are elected by district to four-year terms. There are no term limits. Board members serve residents in districts of different geographical size, but each district has approximately equal population.

The Board of Supervisors meets the 1st and 3rd Monday of each month at 9:00 a.m. in the Board Room of the Courthouse. Citizens wishing to submit agenda items or speak to the board should contact the Purchase Clerk, Rita McDonald, at least one week prior to the board meeting.

All board actions, with the exception of those provided for in the Code of Mississippi are open for public inspection. Those exceptions are most commonly personnel issues and economic development issues.
