Welcome to 
Vermillion County!

County government duties change continually due to state and federal legislation or regulation. Much of the change is self imposed as counties change to meet the demand of their community.

Not all counties need to operate in exactly the same manner. Local control is the cornerstone in the delivery of effective and efficient public services. County government is there when you need it. 

For more information about county government, contact your county officials or the Association of Indiana Counties through their web page
