April is National County Government Month and is an opportunity to raise public awareness about county services, programs and responsibilities. National County Government Month is sponsored by the National Association of Counties (NACo).
County governments provide essential services to create healthy, vibrant and safe communities. Counties build infrastructure, maintain roads and bridges, provide public health and social services, administer justice, keep communities safe, run elections, keep vital records, build and maintain parks and recreational areas, and so much more.Please take some time to learn about the services Linn County provides and how these services benefit you and your loved ones.

His theme was “The Power of One, The Power of Many.” Supervisor Oleson was joined by three other Linn County leaders who gave supporting presentations.
