Chester County government is led by a three-member Board of Commissioners. The Board, together with the County Administrator and Deputy County Administrator is responsible for a budget of over $475 million and a workforce of over 2,600 employees.
The County Solicitor is appointed by the Commissioners and is the legal advisor to the Commissioners, the Chief Administrative Officer, The Deputy Chief Administrative Officer, and all departments, boards, commissions, and agencies of the County.
As part of the County's strategic, data-driven effort, a countywide Quality of Life Survey is regularly conducted. This helps County Government know more about resident's expectations as well as how well we are performing for our community.
The strategic plan is a dynamic management tool that helps the County focus the energy of the entire organization, ensures employees work towards organizational goals, and enables the organization to effectively manage its human resources and financial resources, while tying those resources to our services.
The County of Chester is committed to data-driven decision making to deliver efficient and effective services. Managing for Results is the way in which we conduct business, track performance, and report on the benefits our customers receive.
