Benton County to Celebrate National County Government Month

Kennewick, WA – Benton County, along with many other counties throughout the nation, will celebrate National County Government Month during the month of April to showcase the services provided by the county.

National County Government Month is held each April and is an annual celebration of county government. This month gives counties across the nation an opportunity to educate residents about the available programs and services offered by the county. Counties are one of America's oldest forms of government, with over 3,000 county governments operating today. Counties provide services related to transportation and infrastructure, public health, justice and public safety, human services, and other administrative, finance, and management services.

Benton County believes in the importance of education, promotion, and awareness of county programs and services. The theme for this year’s celebration is “Connecting the Unconnected,” demonstrating how counties deliver people-centered services and connect communities.

Public events to celebrate National County Government Month are still in the planning phase, and additional details will be released as they are available.

We look forward to having the community participate with us as we work to provide educational opportunities and outreach to raise awareness and understanding about the roles and responsibilities of counites. Make sure to follow Benton County on social media for daily educational pieces about our departments and offices.
