Mobile County Celebrates National County Government Month April 2017
It's that time of year again for our celebration of National County Government Month (NCGM). We are excited about the events we have lined up for this year's celebration.
As some of you are aware, NCGM was created by the National Association of Counties (NACo) in 1991 to raise awareness about the roles and responsibilities of county government. This year's theme:
"Brilliant Ideas at Work"
County resources are the core building blocks for healthy, vibrant and safe communities. Nationwide, we invest more than $100 billion each year in transportation, broadband services, water systems and public facilities. Counties run most of our nation's local jails and courthouses, own the largest share of America's road miles and operate more than 900 public hospitals and countless parks, libraries, firehouses and 911 call centers. County transportation and infrastructure are vital to boosting economic competitiveness, moving our food efficiently and maintaining a strong national defense.
We encourage you to celebrate National County Government Month with us this April as we help to raise awareness of county government and individual departments that contribute to the success of Mobile County. For more information, please call 574-5088 or 574-3208.
National County Government Month is a chance to show you exactly Why Mobile County Matters.
