About Hyde County Government
Hyde County is
governed by a five member Board of Commissioners who bear the
responsibility of serving the people and improving the quality of life
in the county. The county is divided into five townships (Currituck,
Fairfield, Lake Landing, Ocracoke and Swan Quarter) with one
commissioner elected from each township. The Board serves four year
staggered terms with elections held every two years. A County Manager,
hired by the Commissioners, acts on their behalf. The Board meets on
the 1st and 3rd Mondays of each month.
Business is conducted via teleconferencing capabilities at the Hyde
County Government Center (Multi-purpose Room) in Swan Quarter and
the Ocracoke School (Commons Area).

The Clerk of
Court, the Register of Deeds and the Sheriff are elected every four
years. The Clerk of Court is custodian of the court system in the
county and that office is financed completely by the State of North
Carolina. The Register of Deeds and the Sheriff operate on a budget
approved annually by the Commissioners.
The Board of
Education is responsible for the operation of the county school system
and is also elected at large by the people. County funds usually
maintain the buildings and provide funds for other capital projects
with state funds paying salaries, purchasing textbooks and supplies.
The Hyde County Board of Education meets on the 1st Monday of each
month in the Superintendentís office in Swan Quarter.
Department and the Department of Social Services have separate boards
that are appointed by the commissioners. The hiring of employees in
these departments is the responsibility of the department Director and
the salary and number of positions are approved by the commissioners.
