Linn County Celebrates National County Government Month

National County Government Month Logo

Linn County is celebrating National County Government Month during the month of April!

National County Government Month is an annual recognition of county government and the many services counties provide. The 2019 theme “Connecting the Unconnected” focuses on how counties deliver “people-centered” services to create healthy, safe and vibrant communities.

Here are just a few of the many ways Linn County is working to provide effective, efficient and people-centered services:

  • We redesigned our website with user testing to elevate your digital experience with us and to make doing business online with the County faster and easier.
  • We started construction on a state-of-the-art public health and child development building, named after two Civil Rights leaders in our community, Dr. Percy and Lileah Harris.
  • Our Public Health department earned the 2018 Local Health Department of the Year award from the National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO) as a medium size local health department.
  • We became the first county in the state to implement inclusive hiring practices for County positions.
  • We hosted Linn County’s first Expungement and Employment Barriers Resource Clinic to help people involved with the criminal justice system overcome barriers to housing, employment and education.
  • We have updated our Community Resource Sheets to connect people in need with services and resources throughout the community.
  • We received a Gold designation from the national SolSmart program for advancing solar energy growth for homes and businesses.
  • We are continuing our Countywide training on customer satisfaction for elected officials, management and staff because we are committed to providing a positive customer experience.
