The Board of Lake County Commissioners has both quasi-legislative and quasi-administrative powers and through resolutions adopted during their regular weekly meeting, sets the administrative policy for county government. While the Commissioners have no power to initiate legislation, they do exercise powers granted to them by the Ohio General Assembly through state law.

The Commissioners are responsible for the appropriations of the county tax revenues through the adoption of the annual county budget. The County operates on a January 1 through December 31 fiscal year and must adopt the final budget no later than April 1 of each year. The budget includes appropriations for the numerous county offices, including those offices headed by other elected officials. The Commissioners have the power to levy taxes and to approve the placement of tax levies and bond issues on the ballot for consideration by county voters. The Commissioners also administer all federal grant monies.

The Commissioners hold title to all county owned property and are responsible for the upkeep. By law, they must provide office space for all county offices. They must build the facilities necessary to house various offices such as the Courtrooms, the Jail, Engineer's facilities and parking. The Commissioners award all contracts for purchase and construction projects.

    The Lake County Board of Commissioners proclaims November as National Adoption Awareness Month. November is a month dedicated to recognizing the stories of youth in foster care who are in need of permanency.  Children often enter into foster care due to a background of abuse or neglect.  While it is preferable for children to reunite with their birth family, too often, circumstances are not ideal.  When reunion with their parents is not possible, children need loving families where they can find security and stability and adoptive parents can provide that very basic comfort each child deserves.
