Compensation Commission

The Johnson County Board of Supervisors announces three vacancies on the Johnson County Compensation Commission for one-year terms beginning Jan. 1, 2024, and expiring Dec. 31, 2024.

Duties include assessment of damage to all property taken by an acquiring agency and located in the county. No member of the Compensation Commission selected shall possess any interest in the proceeding which would cause such person to render a biased decision.

Vacancies include:

  • Owner-operators of agricultural property (two vacancies);
  • Licensed real estate salespersons or brokers (one vacancy);

The Compensation Commission does not have a regular meeting time. The Chief Judge of the Sixth Judicial District selects six members from the Commission to serve during condemnation proceedings in Johnson County. Commissioners are compensated $200 per hearing for which they are chosen to serve. If the hearing is settled or cancelled prior to proceedings, compensation will not be provided. Hearings begin at the Johnson County Sheriff’s Office, 511 S. Capitol St., Iowa City.

Application forms are available on the Committee/Board Openings page of the Johnson County website at and in the office of the Johnson County Board of Supervisors, second floor of the Johnson County Administration Building, 913 S. Dubuque St., Iowa City.
