Ashe County Government

As in most counties throughout Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina, Ashe County is governed by a Board of County Commissioners. Ashe County Commissioners are chosen by the citizens of Ashe to represent them in local, regional, statewide and even national matters. The Board is comprised of five members from local communities and hold regular meetings at 3:30PM on the first and third Monday of each month.

Ashe County has three incorporated townships including: Jefferson, West Jefferson, and Lansing. Within each of these towns there is a Board of Alderman who decides the area's ordinances.

The Ashe County Commissioners as well as the Board of Alderman work diligently to improve quality of life, provide steady employment opportunities and plan accordingly for future needs.
