Hidalgo County joined county governments across the United States in celebrating National County Government Month in the month of April. The National Association of Counties has designated this month to raise awareness of the roles and responsibilities of counties. This year, the theme is “Smart Justice: Creating Safer Communities,” and County officials used this opportunity to open the doors of county government to the public, and showcased projects and initiatives that helped pass down smart justice to create a safer Hidalgo County.
This theme is a fitting and timely tribute to the work that the County has been undertaking to promote government services to the community. Notable activities already held in recognition of National County Government Month include the Justice and Mental Health Collaboration Program; Adult Probation Evidence-Based Practices presentation in conjunction with George Mason University; Veteran’s Court graduation; Drug Court presentation to Palmer Drug Abuse Program’s 4th Annual Substance Abuse and Mental Health Conference; Vote Centers Community Workshop; and a presentation by County Judge Ramon Garcia and County Commissioner Joseph Palacios at this month’s Leadership Edinburg class.
Hidalgo County continued to host and promoted additional activities throughout the month of April in recognition of National County Government Month.
