Pike County to Celebrate National County Government Month
Leaders to highlight county innovations in public health and safety, justice, other county programs

Pike County will celebrate National County Government Month (NCGM) during the month of April to showcase how the county achieves healthy, safe and vibrant communities.

The theme for this year’s celebration of NCGM is “Counties RISE!,” inspired by the signature focus of National Association of Counties (NACo) President Denise Winfrey. The theme is an acronym for and highlights Resiliency, Inclusion, Solvency, and Empowerment - all county priorities undertaken with energy and passion for building stronger counties.

This year, Pike County will celebrate NCGM by highlighting county projects and initiatives on its website and social media platforms to raise public awareness about the programs and services local government can provide to residents.

“In addition to promoting county roles and responsibilities in serving residents, National County Government Month presents an opportunity to celebrate and recognize county employees for their hard work and dedication,” said Commissioner Chairman Matthew Osterberg. “I encourage county residents to explore our National County Government Month Department Spotlights to learn more about the role our county plays.”

Since 1991, NACo has encouraged counties across the country to raise public awareness about county roles and responsibilities during the month of April. 

NCGM Department Spotlights will be featured on the county website, www.pikepa.org/newslist.
