Board of Commissioners
The Anoka County Board of Commissioners establishes county policy and provides oversight for county budget and operations.
Anoka County Board meetings are held twice monthly, typically the second and fourth Tuesday of the month. Unless otherwise noted, meetings are held in Room 705 of the Anoka County Government Center.
See a complete calendar of board meetings and committee meetings. Meetings on the calendar will have links to agenda packets as they become available.
Since Governor Walz loosened the restrictions imposed due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we are opening the Anoka County Board and Management committee meetings to the public for in-person attendance starting May 25, 2021.
Committee meetings previously held at Bunker Hills Activity Center will be moving to the Government Center or other facilities beginning June 14, 2021. Please check the meeting calendar or agenda for the correct location.
Due to the pandemic, the Government Center remains closed except for the first floor. However, members of the public who wish to attend Board and committee meetings in person may do so as elevators will be programmed to allow passage to the 7th and 1st floor ONLY during scheduled meeting days and times.
For those who wish to monitor Anoka County Board meetings remotely, streaming and archived video of these meetings will still be available as it was prior to the pandemic.
Board meetings are shown live on this website at the time of the meeting. See Watch Board Meetings Online. Recorded board meetings are available for viewing later - search for "Anoka County Board Meeting." Recorded board meetings are also broadcast on the local public access channel of many cable TV systems in the county.
