The regular meeting of the Peoria County Board is the second Thursday of each month at 6 p.m. at the Peoria County Courthouse Boardroom, Room 403. A special organizational meeting is held on the first Monday in December of each even-numbered year. These meeting dates are subject to change and will be noticed at least 48 hours in advance.
Peoria County has a Board-Administrator structure. The 18-member board (one representative per district) has a peer-elected chairperson and delegates the day-to-day duties to a hired administrator who supervises various county departments.
The business of the County Board is conducted through the committee system. Each of the seven standing committees is responsible for oversight and budgetary control of its assigned areas. The committees report their activities to the full Board each month.
