“In recent years, the Office of the County Clerk has made great strides to improving our digital communications strategies by making Council information as accessible as possible through our website,” said Mel Rapozo, Council Chair. “We have led the charge for other County departments and agencies to become more transparent utilizing modern technology and continue to seek improvements to better serve our community. We are very proud that these efforts were recognized by NACo.”
