Unincorporated Bay County is governed by the Board of County Commissioners, a five-member governing board elected at large to represent the citizens of Bay County. The board guides the actions of the organization in ensuring the future of Bay County, establishes policies and appoints a county manager to implement those policies managing the operations of the county. The commission annually adopts the millage rate and approves the county budget which determines the revenue and expenditures necessary to operate all county departments.


In 2009, the majority of county government offices relocated to the Bay County Government Center located at 840 W. 11th St. in Panama City, FL.
