The Hamilton County Courthouse in Chattanooga.

Down the street from the Chattanooga City Council, the Hamilton County Commission makes decisions that impact about twice as many people in ten towns and cities including Chattanooga.

One county commission seat is on the ballot in the primary elections on March 5th.

Katherlyn Geter is the Connected Communities Program Manager for The Enterprise Center - which is also the home of Chattamatters.
