Open Government

American flag and Virginia State flag


Northampton County has taken steps to ensure government transparency and the public’s right to know by making available government agendas, minutes, budgets and other records. Citizens are encouraged to attend public meetings of the various Boards and Committees that steer the County’s direction in the best interest of our mission and values.

Open Government strategies are built upon the principles of transparency, integrity, accountability and stakeholder participation.

Open Government is the cornerstone of good governance, democracy and opportunity for all.
