Official Washington County, NY LOGO

Welcome to Washington County, New York. One of 62 counties in the State of New York, Washington County was founded as Charlotte County in 1772 and later named after our first president in 1784. Washington County is charged with providing necessary and incidental services to its 63,000 citizens.
Washington County is governed by a Board of Supervisors (B.O.S.) which is comprised of the town supervisors from each of the County's 17 towns. Votes are calculated on a weighted basis reflecting the population base of each town. The Board of Supervisors is the chief legislative and executive body of the County and makes the laws and resolutions which govern the County's operations.
