The County Administration Office (CAO) provides an array of services to community members, County departments and partner organizations. It is the focal point for implementing policies approved by the elected Board of County Commissioners.
The County Administration Office also works to anticipate customer needs, manage the day-to-day operations of the County, and guide County-wide work to achieve our strategic objectives.
We have three Board-approved priority areas to guide our work:
- Safe, Healthy County
- Vibrant Communities
We use each of these priority areas to inform decisions as we responsibly manage limited resources to deliver vital services with passion, innovation and integrity.
