Work-sessions and meetings scheduled by the Board of County Commissioners are subject to change and are posted 24 hours in advance of the meeting.

The Phillips County Commissioners hold three regular meetings a month. One is scheduled near the 10th of each month, depending on other meetings or Commissioner obligations. The second monthly meeting is scheduled near the 20th of each month, and the third monthly meeting is generally the last working day of the month. The Commissioners may schedule special meetings.
