CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, VA— Chesterfield County recently received 17 achievement awards from the National Association of Counties. These awards recognize the ways that local governments are providing better, more innovative services to their residents, and strengthening communities across the country.

Started in 1970, NACo’s annual Achievement Award Program is designed to recognize innovative county government programs. Each nominee is judged on its own merits and not against other applications received. The awards are given in 21 different categories that reflect the vast, comprehensive services that counties provide. The categories include children and youth, criminal justice, county administration, environmental protection, information technology, health, civic engagement and many more. NACo will recognize the award-winning counties at its 2017 Annual Conference and Exposition, July 21–24, in Franklin County, Ohio.

“I am pleased that so many of the county’s innovative programs have been recognized this year,” said County Administrator Dr. Joseph Casey. “We have such creative staff who are dedicated to providing better customer service, improvements in service delivery and engaging the residents and businesses in our community.”
