Chesterfield County Earns 17 National Achievement Awards from NACo

Communications and Media

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 categories that reflect the vast, comprehensive services that counties provide. NACo will recognize the award-winning counties at its 2018 Annual Conference and Exposition, July 13-16 in Davidson County, Tennessee.

“I’m delighted that Chesterfield’s many innovative services were recognized this year,” said County Administrator Dr. Joe Casey. “Virtually all our innovation submittals received an award. It is flattering to see other localities emulate many of our prior award topics, but most importantly, the dedication our employees have in serving our citizens better.”
