2020 Annual Report cover

The Annual Report gives an overview of the efforts and accomplishments of our County Government during the challenging year of 2020. It is also the County Administrator’s opportunity to highlight some of the 1,900 county government representatives who serve this community throughout the year, many times without recognition.

Beyond the County's efforts to respond to the ongoing pandemic, the 2020 Annual Report illustrates the many ways the County has accomplished the County Administrator's strategic goals: Enhanced Communication, Expanded Innovation, Automation Conversion, and more.
