A Message from the Chairman

Our population is expected to increase to about 205,000 by the year 2025. The responsibilities of government is to anticipate, fund and provide the expected service for this growth are enormous and involve planned and orderly growth, an effective transportation and road system, cost-effective delivery of County services, a financially sound County government, and a strong sustainable local economy. The members of Beaufort County Council recognize these responsibilities and we seek the input and help of all citizens through the County's boards, agencies, commission and authorities. We welcome your input and ideas, and thank you for serving your County.
