Washington Presents State of the County, Highlights Progress During Pandemic

This week, Washington County presented its State of the County and highlighted progress made during the pandemic in several areas, including how the county continues to use ARPA funds to invest in development.

“Welcome to the 2022 State of the County. We are excited to share with you some of the highlights Washington County Government has experienced over the past year and what we are looking forward to in the future, said County Administrator John M. Martirano, Esq. “Our 2021 goals were to sustain our local economy, create new jobs and welcome new businesses, keep our citizens and families safe and healthy, and contribute to the kindness in our communities. This presentation will showcase where we have continued to RISE together as Washington County to fulfill these goals.”

“As President of the Board of County Commissioners, I would like to say thank you – to citizens, staff, and volunteers. Our County would not be what it is without each and every one of you,” said Board of County Commissioners President Jeffrey Cline. “2021 proved to be another challenging year with a pandemic still here among us, but I have never been prouder of the staff at Washington County Government for persevering through tough times. From public safety to pubic works, each and every County department and division deserves to be recognized for overcoming obstacles and finding solutions to best serve our citizens. County staff has risen together and remained resilient in providing essential services, offering innovative ideas and activities that are safe and healthy, continued with everyday services for our citizens, and engaged the community to be aware and involved of what’s happening in Washington County.”
