HENDRY COUNTY -- The next regular meeting of the Hendry Board of County Commissioners (BOCC) is scheduled to be held at 5 p.m. on Sept. 28 at the Commission Chambers in the Hendry County Courthouse, 25 E. Hickpochee Ave., LaBelle.
The BOCC meetings are open to the public. If a person decides to appeal any decision made by the Hendry County Commission with respect to any matter considered at such a meeting or hearing, he or she will need a record of the proceedings, and that, for such purpose, he or she may need to ensure that a verbatim record of the proceedings is made, which record includes the testimony and evidence upon which the appeal is to be based. Please note that matters may be discussed at a meeting which are not on the prepared agenda for the meeting.
“The responsibility for this multi-faceted service delivery organization is borne by the five-member County Commission, elected from geographic districts for staggered four-year terms. County commissioners annually elect a chairperson who serves as the Commission's presiding officer. The Commission, in turn, hires a county administrator who is responsible for the administrative operations of County government,” according to the BOCC website.
The Commission's regular meetings are on the second Tuesday of each month at 5 p.m. in the Clewiston City Hall, Commission Chambers, 115 West Ventura Ave, Clewiston, Florida and each fourth Tuesday of the month at 5:00 p.m. in the Hendry County Courthouse, Commission Chambers, 25 E. Hickpochee Avenue, LaBelle, Florida.
