Linn County Mission Statement

Linn County Government

Linn County government provides residents with a wide range of services including public safety and law enforcement; human and social services; public health; civil and criminal justice system services; parks and conservation; planning and development; construction and maintenance of secondary roads and bridges; vehicle registration; keeping records and vital statistics; elections; general and administrative support services and more. Linn County’s departments work together and with partners locally, regionally and nationally to provide these services and to meet the needs of residents. 

Linn County is governed by a Board of Supervisors, elected by voters within districts to four-year staggered terms. Supervisors must live within their districts. The Board appoints a chair and a vice chair, who each serve one calendar year. The chair presides at all meetings of the Board and is recognized as the head of the County for all ceremonial purposes.

In addition to the Board of Supervisors, voters elect the Linn County Attorney, Auditor, Recorder, Sheriff and Treasurer. These offices are elected at-large to four-year terms.
