Welcome to the Ohio Council of County Officials newly created website. Our goal is to better inform the citizens of our great state about county government. We hope you find it useful as well as informative.
The members of this organization consist of the statewide associations of elected county officials representing Auditors, Clerks of the Court of Common Pleas, Commissioners, Coroners, Engineers, Judges of the Court of Common Pleas as selected by the Ohio Judicial Conference, Prosecuting Attorneys, Recorders, Sheriffs and Treasurers.
The purpose of the organization is to unite in a joint effort the various associations representing county elected officials and judges to promote sound, efficient, and fiscally responsible governance, while maintaining sufficient checks and balances within the county government structure; to serve as a forum where the various associations can discuss issues of mutual concern and attempt to resolve any differences of opinion; to advocate in the General Assembly for legislative outcomes that are beneficial to county government; and, to promote a greater understanding by the citizens of Ohio of the important role county government serves.
