We may not be making a Van Gogh or Monet, and our paint palette is just a big barrel, but we're happy to help you get rid of your leftover paint. If you want to get it out of your basement or garage, bring it to our Solid Waste facility for safe disposal.

The container size you bring it in needs to be five gallons or smaller, but you can bring up to 50 pounds of product.

Do wonder what a "trauma-informed community" is? Do you live in one?

Dive deep into this science and decide if you live or work in one and if you wish to make changes to it.

JUNE 24 & 25 - FREE!

Here's a thing we think is neat. We have nine employees at the County that have worked here at least 25 years (very thankful for y'all). Of those nine, five of 'em are at Road and Bridge.

Those five have a combined 143 years of experience. That's ... pretty incredible, in our opinion. They'll give you a lot of reasons for why they've stayed, but they all mentioned they like the day-to-day variety of job tasks. From plowing snow to patching roads to being outdoors, they enjoy it all.

We're glad we have Jim, Anthony, Darlene, Kevin and Jim here. Their experience is invaluable.
