In the United States alone, there are 3,141 counties and county equivalents, including boroughs and parishes. Each of these counties are filled with unique buildings and spaces that require specialized maintenance throughout the year. As a whole, county government buildings — from courthouses and jails, to parks and historical landmarks — are an essential component of a healthy, strong and functional downtown.
It is up to facility managers and their teams to ensure county buildings are both comfortable and functional. Without these men and women, a county would struggle (or even cease) to function. It is for this reason that facility managers must seek out tools and resources that empower their teams to protect not only their buildings, but also county employees and the public.
