McHenry County Government

Most people know of McHenry County Government for its core responsibilities: running elections, maintaining county roads, issuing birth, death, and marriage records, and managing services to residents in unincorporated areas. While the County does provide direct services, the County also plays a pivotal role in the coordination of regional development activities. The County works with federal, state, and other local governments, nonprofits organizations, private firms, and residents to plan and make decisions that shape how our communities grow and enhance quality of life. The purpose of the show is to provide information about County projects, programs and services to meet the needs of McHenry County residents.
