They act as receptionists and switchboard operators as well as public information persons for the department. They type and mail correspondence, schedule meetings, answer phones, distribute interoffice mail, department mail, maintain the department filing system, maintain bidder's lists, do radio dispatch if needed, process agenda items for the Board of Supervisors, order and maintain office supplies for the department, as well as helping anyone as they enter our building.

Personnel and Payroll are two more areas of responsibility. New hires for the department are processed through this office, coordinating with the central County Personnel department. Timekeeping is maintained through an internal cost accounting system, providing data to the central County Payroll department for disbursement of employee payroll checks.

From word processing and email to Computer Aided Drafting (CAD) and Geographic Information Systems (GIS), the computer has become an integral part of the Department. The Information Systems staff is responsible for the maintenance of these systems and support of the various computer programs.
