My name is Marshall Jones and I am your County Board Chairman for fiscal years 2018 - 2019.  This site is your portal to Henry County Government and I hope you will visit it frequently.

The purpose of this site is to act as an additional link to your local government and its officials in order, to the extent possible, to provide transparent government.

Our scheduled meetings are found on the home page and if you wish to view the agendas, click on the PUBLIC INFO link at the top of the page.

We welcome your thoughts and concerns and ask that you share them with us.  Contact information for board members can be found under the Departments tab at the top, then choose the County Board tab on the left, and then click the "Meet Your County Board Members" link.

Lastly, if you are interested in helping your community, there are many opportunities for volunteering.  You can view a comprehensive list of committees available by clicking the "Volunteer Opportunities" link in the County Board section. 

 Thank you for allowing me the privilege of serving you.

Together, we are Henry County.

Marshall Jones


About Henry County

New Art on Display

The newest piece of art hanging in the Henry County Courthouse was donated by Jodi Haars of Geneseo. Jodi's main artistic outlets have always been music, classical dance, writing and merchandise display. She was encouraged to pick up graphite pencil which led to colour pencil, then to watercolour which is her favorite medium to date.  She is also interested in line and wash and pastels. Coming so late to these mediums has been both challenging and satisfying, as there is so much to discover. She continues to learn and grow enthusiastically.
