Get To Know The Recommended Budget

See how the multibillion-dollar budget affects you and your community.

County government provides many services that support the entire county, covering those who live in local cities seen in the gray section of the map and the unincorporated area in the green section. These include things like social service assistance, health programs, foster care, adult protective services, food and restaurant inspections, and elections. 

For those who live in the unincorporated area, County government is responsible for things a city government would typically do, like provide police and fire protection as well as maintain parks, libraries and roads.
