MONONA COUNTY BOARD OF SUPERVISORS
Mike Collison, Chairman - District 3, Tammy Bramley - District 1, Tom Brouillette - District 2
The Board of Supervisors has both legistlative and administrative powers and is the policy-making body of Monona County government. With its authority to adopt legislation and policies for department operations, the Board sets priorities, allocates resources and maintains budgetary control. By using the budget process effectively, they are able to monitor and correct inefficiencies in all organizational units. In addition to these responsibilities, the Board promotes and facilitates various cooperative efforts between and among other government entities and jurisdictions.
The term of office for elected members of the Board of Supervisors is four years. [Sec. 331.201(4)] The terms are staggered so that no more than a bare majority of the board will be elected in any given election. To accommodate this, elections are held biennially. [Secs. 39.18; 331.203(2)(c), .204(3), .208(4)]

If a quorum fails to appear at any meeting, the county auditor must adjourn such meeting from day to day until a quorum is present. [Sec. 313.213(2)]
