San Benito County Board of Supervisors
County Supervisors create ordinances (laws) that we must live by (as long as state or federal law does not conflict with them). They set sales tax and utility rates, and determine various fees we must pay when using certain county services. They allocate resources to the various departments in the county, but may not always oversee the administration of a department, if the department is run by an elected official, such as sheriff or tax collector.
Counties are run by Chief Administrative Officers ("CAO") that report to the entire Board of Supervisors. When constituents have a problem that they bring to a Supervisor, the Supervisor typically reaches out to the CAO.
