Core Principles

In April 2011, the Franklin County Board of Commissioners revised their "core principles" and created "county-level goals" as a first step in an initiative to provide more clarity about why the programs the County offers exist, what value they offer to citizens, how they benefit the community, what price we pay for them, and what objectives and citizen demands they are achieving. The result of this initiative will also enhance the capabilities of the Board of Commissioners to address current fiscal realities and still adhere to these core principles, and to meet the expectations of Franklin County residents. In 2020, the commissioners added a sixth core principle - racial equity.
