Montrose County is citizen driven and has five citizen-based priorities:
Priority 1: Managed growth and economic development of Montrose County;
Priority 2: Improve and maintain a safe transportation system;
Priority 3: Provide for the public safety;
Priority 4: Effective and responsive government; and
Priority 5: Increase citizen engagement and represent local interests.
Each administrative department and elected office has created individual business plans, which align with the county-wide priorities. The goals of each department focus the efforts of county operations on the citizens’ priorities and concerns in conjunction with the county’s statutory responsibilities.
