The Wayne County Commission and its employees are the legislative branch of county government. The chief role of the commission is to adopt a budget and to enact ordinances. The commission also approves contracts, appointments and rules. The money is spent and ordinances are enforced through the administrative branch. This year's $2.06 billion budget runs the county operations that services the more than 1.8 million people living in Wayne County.

All Wayne County Commission meetings, as well as the budget sessions, are open to the public. The commission meets on the first and the third Thursday of the month at 10:00 a.m. in the meeting chambers on the mezzanine of the Guardian Building, which is located at 500 Griswold in Detroit.

Wayne County, the most populous county in the State of Michigan, is divided into 15 districts and commissioners are elected every two years in even-year elections. In addition to the full body, the Commission has 8 standing committees.
