 CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, VA— Chesterfield County has received nine achievement awards from the National Association of Counties. NACo’s membership includes more than 2,000 counties, representing more than 80 percent of the nation’s population.
The 2013 award winners are:  
• Environmental Engineering: the Rain Garden Resources Program, which encouraged stewardship of water quality and the Chesapeake Bay through a series of hands-on education programs for residents. 
• Human Resource Management had two winning entries: The C-Fit Farmers Market, which promotes healthier lifestyles; and the Volunteer Program Enhancements — A New Direction in Changing Economic Times, which helped the county to maintain high levels of customer service and quality.
• Chesterfield County Public Library: Three awards including F.U.N. @ CCPL, an intensive program to address financial literacy; Building Common Ground, a series of programs to promote an open dialog between residents and key figures in local government; and Open House for Student Success, a series of back-to-school nights that enabled students and their parents to make better use of the library’s resources.
• The Real Estate Assessor’s Office: The Automated Land Use Program improved the efficiency and effectiveness of the land-use program by integrating GIS maps with soil classifications, the county’s parcel layer and Virginia State University aerial photos.
• The Utilities Department received two awards: Enhancing Customer Service Through Technology, Flexibility and Efficiency, and Nutrient-Reduction and Cost Recovery Program, which helped in the implementation of a new information system that enabled customers to interact with the department using on-line service, mobile service order management or interactive voicemail. The second award was a partnership between Utilities and industrial customers to use nontraditional methods to reduce the amount of nutrients in wastewater, and lessen the impact on the James River and Chesapeake Bay.


The Department of Public Affairs won eight awards from the National Association for County Information Officers, NACIO, which is an affiliate of NACo. The award winners are:
• Superior Award in the Community Events category for El Juguetazo
