Yolo County is one of the original 27 counties when California became a state in 1850. The majority of the County’s population live within its four cities: Davis, West Sacramento, Winters, and Woodland. The state capitol, Sacramento, is located just 20 miles southeast of Woodland, and its proximity to the Sacramento International Airport, as well as two interstate highways, places Yolo County within a major transportation hub.

The County is organized into functional areas including General Government, Health and Human Services, Law and Justice Services, and Planning and Public Works. As a regional government, the County provides services, including elections, criminal prosecutions, and public health. For the residents of the unincorporated areas, Yolo County provides all the municipal services a city would provide, including patrol services, trash collection, and road maintenance. As a political subdivision of the State, the County provides state and federal services including child protective services, public assistance/self-sufficiency services, and mental health services. The County is supported by a Recommended FY 2022-23 total county budget of approximately $580.7 million and more than 1,814.4 full-time equivalent positions. The 2020-2025 Strategic Plan guides Yolo County and enables the organization to operate with a unified perspective. The County has Strategic Plan Goals of having thriving residents, safe communities, a sustainable environment, flourishing agriculture, and a robust economy. Its core values include service, performance, integrity, responsibility, innovation, and teamwork.
