Our Government  

Buncombe County Government is Your Government

Local government is the closest government to the people. It is made up of neighbors who are here to help neighbors by bringing the highest quality of life to the community.

Buncombe County has an average of 1,400 employees who serve as firemen, sheriff deputies, nurses, social workers, pharmacists, librarians, emergency medical workers, permits and inspections, landfill workers, agriculture extension agents, naturalists, lifeguards, planners, tax assessors and administrators all working to insure the high quality of life we have all come to enjoy.
