Clark County Council

Indiana Code 36-2-3 provides that the County Council is the fiscal body for county government. The official name is "The Clark County Council".

County Council Meetings are held at 6:00 P.M. in the Meeting Chambers, Room 103 of the Clark County Government Center.  Please contact Jessica Huffman in the Auditor's Office (812) 285-6214 if you wish to be placed on the Agenda. 

The council members serve four (4) year terms beginning January 1 after the election. One (1) member of the fiscal body shall be elected by the voters of each of the four (4) districts and must reside in that district. Three (3) At-large members of the fiscal body shall be elected by the voters of the whole county and must reside in the county.

The council has authority to view or review fiscal matters, determine proper policy and set priorities for the allocation and expenditure of county funds.

The general assembly determines the powers of a county council which typically are:

  • Establishing salaries, wages, per diems and other compensation for all county officials and employees. (IC 36-2-5-11)

  • Appropriating public funds, i.e., authorizing the expenditure of county money by particular officials or departments for specific purposes.
  • Authorizing certain purchases or sales of county owned land (IC 36-1-11-3) or other real property (36-2-2-20).
