Blue Earth County will celebrate National County Government Month (NCGM) during the month of April. The theme for this year’s celebration of NCGM is “Counties Matter,” demonstrating how counties help to improve people’s lives every day, especially for local government workers on the frontlines of the coronavirus pandemic. Counties provide public health services, administer justice, keep communities safe, foster economic opportunities and much more.
“Blue Earth County is proud of the programs and services we provide to our residents,” said Board Chair Kip Bruender. “On behalf of the County Board, we are thrilled to see our staff’s teamwork throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. We are proud of our staff for continuing to offer services and for being a strong, steady resource for our community.”
Since 1991 the National Association of Counties (NACo) has encouraged counties across the country to raise public awareness and understanding about the roles and responsibilities of counties. Blue Earth County takes pride in our responsibility to protect and enhance the health, wellbeing and safety of our residents in efficient and cost-effective ways. Throughout 2020 and 2021, Blue Earth County has demonstrated how “Counties Matter”, especially in supporting residents and businesses during the coronavirus pandemic.
