April is National County Government Month

On Tuesday, April 4th, the Olmsted County Board of Commissioners proclaimed April 2017 as National County Government Month (NCGM) and encouraged all county officials, employees, and residents to participate in county government celebration activities.

Olmsted County provides a variety of essential public services that affect our lives every day, including the driver's license in our wallets, the roads we drive on, the restaurants we visit, and the safety we feel in our neighborhoods.

This year's NCGM theme is "Brilliant Ideas At Work". Olmsted County is proud to provide programs and initiatives that promote a healthy, vibrant and safe community for all.  Brilliant Ideas to be highlighted this month include:
