  • Brent: New staff is ready to serve county

    The one characteristic of “local” government that I think citizens most appreciate is accessibility. In a day of automated operators, telephone prompts and websites, it is refreshing to call a number, get a friendly person on the other end and have your question answered.  
    It is equally nice to be able to walk into an office without an appointment and have someone that you know, or at least know of, assist you with your business, questions and problems.
