State of the County

Elected officials and department representatives gave citizens an inside look at what Josephine County offers and their plans for the future during the 2019 State of the County presentation April 11 at the Josephine County Fairgrounds.
 

Josephine County employs a staff of more than 400 tasked with law enforcement, airport operations, emergency management, community development, forestry, public health, transit and more public services. More than 85 percent of the county’s $122 million budget comes from dedicated funds in the form of grants and other revenue streams. The daily administrative functions of each county office, program or division are overseen by appointed managers or one of seven elected officials. The Board of County Commissioners sets policy, adopts the annual budget and passes resolutions and ordinances in accordance with state law.

Josephine County was created by the Territorial Legislature on Jan. 22, 1856, and was the 19th and last Oregon county created before statehood. The county is named for Josephine Rollins, the first white woman to settle in Southern Oregon. The county’s population was 85,904 in 2017, an 11 percent increase since 2002.
