Our Great Community

The County has been evaluating the status of broadband or internet access for all citizens. To help us develop a greater understanding of internet speeds used by residents and businesses, we have developed a tool that allows us to collect information about the speed and location of your connection. This will allow us to see where we can seek out and invest our fair share of federal dollars to improve the County's internet infrastructure and what vendors we need to work with on this project.

High Quality Education

One of the primary reasons people live in and move to Washington County is the high-quality education institutions. Every year, these wonderful institutions produce some of the best and brightest students that the state of Wisconsin has to offer.

Employer Connection

Businesses throughout Washington County are experiencing major challenges in maintaining an adequate workforce and talent pipeline. Washington County is taking a leadership role to inspire to connect kids, to careers and employers, and then identify and overcome hurdles to keeping and bringing our kids home to live, work, and raise their families.



 Social Capital

Working together with leaders in government, nonprofit, religious, and business sectors, will help create a social capital initiative and build connections among individuals.
