Open & Responsible Government Priority Area

In order to deliver on the citizen-centric priority above, Fulton County government must recruit and develop a competent, engaged workforce and maintain a collection of facilities, equipment and technology that enables high performance. In addition, the County must manage its finances wisely and develop and follow policies that promote both efficient and effective practices. Finally, the government must promote trust among its citizens by regularly reporting on its performance, conducting itself in a transparent and legal manner, and engaging with its residents in setting the direction of county government.
