April – National County Government Month: April is National County Government Month and there is no better time to inform our citizens on the importance of county government and how we touch their lives every day. Through our tireless efforts and the critical services, we provide to our residents. County Government faces many challenges, yet we have much to be proud of. Selfless county officials and frontline employees have demonstrated bold, inspirational leadership, driving recovery and helping our residents and communities thrive. No two counties are exactly the same. Counties are diverse in structure and how we deliver services to our communities. In general, states decide the roles and responsibilities of county governments. Counties are governed by locally elected officials. Though organizational structures vary, all county, parish and borough governments are on the front lines of delivering vital services to residents. Stronger Counties. Stronger America.
Counties are one of America’s oldest forms of government, dating back to 1634 when the first county governments (shires) were established in Virginia. The organization and structure of today’s 3,069 county governments are chartered under state constitutions or laws and are tailored to fit the needs and characteristics of states and local areas.
Upcoming Meeting: SDACWO County Welfare Officials Workshop; SDACO County Officials Workshop; SDACHS County Highway Assistants Workshop
Adjournment: Motion by Mike Kenzy, second by Craig Heller, to adjourn at 7:01 P.M. All voted Aye. Motion Carried.
