About The Board of Supervisors
The DeSoto County Board of Supervisors is the governing body of DeSoto County. Supervisors provide 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 the 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 of the members are expected to look after the good of DeSoto County as a whole.
