Sole commissioner

In local government in the United States, sole commissioner government is a county commission with only one seat. The sole commissioner typically holds all legislative and executive powers in the county. Even though with one commissioner there is no voiced debate among the commission, sole commissioners typically hold public meetings to allow public input on decisions.

Though the structure was historically more widespread, now [1][2]

Most counties with sole commissioners are small and rural. However, Walker (part of metro Chattanooga) are notable exceptions.
