- Provide responsive and cost-effective social services (with measurable results) to an increasingly diverse and complex society.
- Provide and enhance public infrastructure, including essential water, wastewater, other utilities, transportation systems (including “Farm to Market” roads), and achieve best possible flood protection for entire County region, including upgrading necessary levees to obtain reasonable flood insurance coverage for all residents, businesses, and property owners.
