CUMBERLAND COUNTY GOVERNMENT
The mission of the Executive Office is to implement the County Board's policies, represent the interests of the county with other governmental agencies and groups, as well as provide leadership to the departments to achieve the organization's goals and objectives.
Cumberland County Government has 13 departments with over 400 full-time employees and an annual budget of more than $35 million.
Like county governments across the nation, they provide traditional county services, such as deeds, probate, sheriff's patrol, the county jail, emergency management, the district attorney's office, and dispatch.
Facilitator, Convener, Service Provider, Participant: these are the various roles the county can play depending on the situation and need. The county has utilized two five year strategic plans involving dozens of citizens, municipal officials, legislators and business leaders examining issues of importance to the region and the county's governance.
A major focus of Cumberland County government has been researching and developing alternative solutions for less costly and equally or more effective public services. In addition to expanding our core services such as dispatch and law enforcement, Cumberland County has convened and participated in gatherings of community leaders and residents to discuss regional approaches to particular issues in education, community development, public health, energy efficiency and local services delivery.
