Yolo County Core Values
The County of Yolo is one of California's original counties and operates under General Law. The County is governed by an elected five-member Board of Supervisors who serve four-year terms. The county is organized into functional areas including: General Government, Law and Justice Services, Health and Human Services, Planning, Resources and Public Works, and Agriculture.
Yolo County was one of the original 27 counties created when California became a state in 1850 and is now home to over 180,000 people. Nearly 85% of the population lives in the County’s four cities: Davis, West Sacramento, Woodland and Winters. Sacramento, the State Capitol, is located 20 miles southeast of Woodland. It’s close proximity to the Sacramento International Airport, as well as two interstate highways, places Yolo County within a major transportation hub of the state. Traditionally, farming and ranching activities have played an important role in making Yolo County one of the leading agricultural producers in the nation.
