Welcome To the Oconto County Website
Oconto County, a rural county of over 35,000 residents, is located in northeast Wisconsin. Our residents enjoy a tremendous quality of life. It is a great place to visit, live, work and raise a family. We have an excellent educational system, diverse business climate and great places for recreation. This website will help you explore these in more detail.

Our county government is committed to maintaining a high quality of life for all of our citizens. I am proud of the dedicated employees who make our county run so smoothly, and honored to serve the citizens of our county. Our taxpayers get a tremendous value. County workers keep our highways clear of snow and safe from accidents. The Sheriffs' Department keeps us safe and secure. Our Health & Human Services Department provides a safety net for those in need. Numerous other departments provide the necessary other programs and services to fulfill the requirements of our residents.

Oconto County attempts to provide all of these services in the most cost efficient and effective means possible, so that all our citizens can benefit from the services and programs the County offers.

I invite you to browse this web site to learn more about Oconto County government and the services we provide. I hope you agree that Oconto County is "A Place for You"
