Our Mission & Vision


Allegany County will be the premier community in our region to live, work, and play. To achieve this, we will be responsive to our citizens and other stakeholders through effective communication, efficient delivery of core services, management of available resources, development of new resources, and innovative utilization of staff, technology, and partnerships.


The mission of Allegany County Government is to provide core services and programs to improve the quality of life for its citizens and other stakeholders. The County must be a strong regional leader in promoting and facilitating commerce, economic growth, quality education, and community development. Further, we must endeavor to utilize our fiscal and human resources to develop and implement accessible, cost effective, high quality services, which must be improved and enhanced through employment of emerging technologies, methods, and partnerships.

County business must be conducted in an open, professional, and ethical manner with the overall good of the community as its goal. Citizens are valued customers and as such, their concerns and input must guide our efforts and they must be treated in a timely, equitable, and respectful manner.

County employees are our greatest resource. They must be treated as valued members of the organization and receive the training and support necessary to excel at their jobs.
