Information about Montana's Counties

Today, citizens depend on county government more than ever before.  Most counties today are involved in far more than such traditionally mandated services as public records, law enforcement and tax collection. Today’s county governments juggle priorities and concerns in such areas as housing, environmental protection, transportation and economic development.
