Now, more than ever, County officials must continue to find innovative ways to manage limited resources and revenues in a way that best supports the ever growing needs of our community.
In the report below, you will see how County Human Services continue to lead the way in economically and efficiently providing core and non-core services to an increasing number of citizens.

See the successes and challenges of our Department of Social Services, Health, Parks Greenways & Recreation and Workforce Development in the Human Services Annual Report.
“As we move forward in this challenging budget environment, we must avoid the tendency to lead defensively. Our commitment to our community is to lead with the future in mind.” Mandy Stone, Assistant County Manager for Human Services.
