Isle of Wight County Board of Supervisors


Isle of Wight County is governed by the Board of Supervisors, an elected body of five members representing each of the County’s five election districts: Carrsville, Hardy, Newport, Smithfield and Windsor.  The Board determines all policies and ordinances that govern the County and appropriates funds for County programs through an annual budget.  The Supervisors are elected to four-year terms that are staggered at two-year intervals. The Board elects its Chairman and Vice-Chairman each year at its organizational meeting in January.

Values Statement

“To sustain Isle of Wight County’s stature as a community of CHOICE for people, families and businesses alike while preserving and protecting our rural heritage, our bountiful mix of natural resources and our natural beauty for present and future generations.”
