The County Court is the administrative office of Gilliam County. The Court sets policy for the County, oversees all non-elected departments, and represents the County in various forums. 

The County Court consists of a County Judge and two Commissioners.  The Judge is an elected, nonpartisan position and serves a full-time, 6-year term. The Judge functions as the day-to-day Administrator of the County and Chairman of the Court, as well as serving as Juvenile and Probate Judge. The Commissioners are partisan positions and are elected to serve part-time for a 4-year term. The Court is assisted by a full-time appointed court administrator. 
The County Court meets in the Circuit Court Room at the Courthouse on the first and third Wednesdays of each month starting at 10:00 am.  Special meetings are held as needed.  All meetings are open to the public.
