Lewis County is home to more than 70,400 residents. The local economy has traditionally relied
on natural resources such as forest products, agriculture and mining. The area has also
experienced growth in retail trade. An elected, three-member Board of Commissioners
administers the County. The County operates on a $100 million annual budget. Its 664 full- and
part-time employees provide public safety (Sheriff and Court services), construction and
maintenance of roads and bridges, health and social services, cultural and recreational facilities
and services, planning and zoning services and general administrative services.
