Description and Mission
The Facilities and Maintenance Department delivers maintenance and repairs to the County's building and sites, and helps provide a safe and productive enviroment for the County Staff and visiting public. The department strives to maximize the expected life cycle of County assets through a constantly developing preventative maintenance program and to ensure that equipment is suited to the growing needs of County departments. The County's aging assets can be challenging to maintain, and we continue to develop a replacement program to address these assets as they reach the end of their expected service life.
