Demystifying County Government: May 2021
We know what cities do: public safety - police and fire services - public works, libraries. And we know how cities work: citizens elect a city council and mayor, and the city council, with the mayor, run the city. But what does Champaign County government do and how does it work? We elect many county level officials - judges, state’s attorney, circuit clerk, county clerk and more. Do they work together and, if so, how? Where do the funds to run their offices come from? What is the County Executive’s role?
In May 2021, LWVCC held a discussion on these issues, including how Champaign County government affects our lives and the basis for a County Governance Study. The slides from the discussion are here for review.
