Board of Supervisors

Supervisors Swearing in 2020

DeSoto County is governed by five elected District Supervisors.  The Board of Supervisors provides leadership over critical policy areas, including policies necessary to ensure safe communities, protect public health, promote economic development, and plan and manage land use.

DeSoto County Supervisors have full authority over roads and bridges in unincorporated areas of DeSoto County, county law enforcement, collections, fines, and levying taxes. The board is responsible for establishing policy for the complex multi-million-dollar budgets of county government. While each Supervisor represents his or her district, all the members are expected to look after the good of DeSoto County as a whole.
