Lake County Commissioners Celebrate National County Government Month

PAINESVILLE, OH, April 21, 2022 — The Lake County Board of Commissioners is recognizing April as “National County Government Month” in an effort to highlight the work that is done every day to improve the lives of our residents and to celebrate those who make it all possible.

The Ohio Constitution defines a structure of county government that is organized around elected officials consisting of a 3-member Board of Commissioners, along with a Prosecutor, Auditor, Treasurer, Recorder, Engineer, Clerk of Courts, Sheriff, and Coroner. Lake County also supports the Court of Common Pleas (General Division, Domestic Relations Division, Probate Division, and Juvenile Division).

“Lake County is home to over 232,00 residents and not everyone realizes all the roles that county government plays on a daily basis,” stated Board President John Hamercheck, “and this designation is intended to recognize the professional efforts of our fellow public servants and staff.” Please click here to view the entire news release.
