Mission Statement

To enrich social, economic, and environmental vitality, Franklin County will provide services which are responsive to the health, safety, and general welfare needs of County residents.

The County government is dedicated to providing these services through the efficient and effective use of the County's available resources in an honest, open, and caring manner.

Governing Body

The three County Commissioners constitute the chief governing body of the County.  The Commissioners are vested with policy-making authority to provide certain local services and facilities on a county-wide basis.
