Mecklenburg County

Mecklenburg County departments and the Board of County Commissioners service many community needs, especially those related to health, education, welfare, mental health, and the environment. Core service areas include land use and environmental services, health and human services, and community services, including parks, libraries, and elections. The Board of County Commissioners sets the tax rate for Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools. The Clerk of Court, Register of Deeds, and Sheriff are elected separately from the County Commissioners.

Budget/Public Policy Workshops are held every second Tuesday of each month at 3:00 p.m. in Conference Center Room 267 of the CMGC (2nd floor). Steele Creek is split between County Commissioner Districts 2 and 6. See Steele Creek Area Commissioner Districts Map.
