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?
Join us for this discussion to get the answers to these questions and more, the answers you need to understand Champaign County government and how it affects our lives.
