     County Commissioners are elected officials. There are three (3) Commissioners in each county in West Virginia. Jefferson County and Berkeley County are the only exceptions with five (5) Commissioners. Each Commissioner serves a term of six (6) years, with a rotation of one Commissioner being elected every two (2) years. This rotation schedule assures that there will always be experienced people on the panel. At the first meeting in January each year the Commission elects its President for the upcoming year. 
     The salary of the Commissioners is set by the State Legislature in the West Virginia Code according to the total assessment values for the County each year.
     The primary function of the County Commission is budget development and management, overseeing purchasing for the county, management of county assets, overseeing the governing, management and protection of Upshur County and its citizens.


      The mission of the Upshur County Commission is to provide superior public service and support which enables all county residents the opportunity to improve their quality of life, and enjoy the benefits of a safe, sustainable and progressive community in North Central West Virginia.
