Media and Interested Parties

Across the country, April marks National County Government Month (NCGM). Clackamas County will take several actions to highlight numerous programs and services that improve residents' lives.

This year, the theme is "Safe and Secure Communities." The county will initiate a campaign to increase public awareness of its many services keeping residents safe, healthy and secure.

A presentation to the Board of County Commissioners about NCGM will take place next Thursday, April 7, during the weekly business meeting. The presentation will be highlighted by a new video centered on the county's successful response to the Hepatitis A incident in Sandy in February. County employees involved in that response will be recognized.

The video is available online.

All members of the public are invited to follow Clackamas County on Facebook or on Twitter to keep up with the campaign.

The business meeting starts at 10 a.m. in room 409 of the county Public Services Building, 2051 Kaen Road in Oregon City.

This month-long recognition is spearheaded by the National Association of Counties (NACo), an organization that represents county governments in the United States.
