Government Performance


St. Louis County follows best practices for performance management and measurement. Each year, the County Board adopts the standard set of county performance measures proposed by the Minnesota State Auditor's Performance Measurement Program. This is a standard set of 10 performance measures for counties that will aid residents, taxpayers, and state and local officials in determining the efficacy of counties in providing services, and measure residents' opinions of those services. 

Participation in the Minnesota State Auditor's Performance Measures Program is voluntary; however, St. Louis County is well positioned to participate by virtue of its continued efforts in performance measurement and citizen surveys.

Counties that choose to participate must officially adopt the corresponding 10 performance benchmarks developed by the Council, and report on them in order to receive a new local government performance aid, reimbursed at $0.14 per capital, not to exceed $25,000.
