Washington County Annual Performance Measure and Indicators Report
Washington County aims to deliver excellent public services to its residents in a way that is efficient, cost-effective, and responsive. To achieve this, they adopted a results-oriented government system in the early 1990s. This system allows them to sustain or enhance service levels and align performance with management decisions.
The Washington County Annual Performance Measures and Indicators Report plays a crucial role in keeping up with evolving expectations, directing efforts towards improving vital programs and services, making informed decisions, and effectively communicating outcomes to residents.
