Iredell County participates in a process known as strategic planning. Strategic planning forces each department to focus their resources and align their departmental mission with the overall mission and objectives set by the Iredell County Board of Commissioners. Our departments do this by setting goals each year to take steps toward achieving Iredell County’s mission which is “providing exceptional public services in an efficient and cost-effective manner to position Iredell County as a premier community in which to live, work and raise a family.” The State of the County gives you, the citizen, an idea of how well we have done over the past year meeting these goals. Iredell County believes in being exceptional, and we set lofty goals. Sometimes these goals take more than one year to accomplish. Some of our goals are goals for continual improvement. In this document, you will see each department's goals and if they have met those goals. Some goals are met each year but, are ongoing. If they have not fully met the goal yet, then it will be listed as “In Progress.” You will also see some of the accomplishments from the past year that were not directly tied to the goals. On behalf of all County Staff and our Board of Commissioners, thank you for your support, and we hope that you are proud of the State of Your County.
