Since 1972, Benton County has been an Oregon “Home Rule” County, meaning that the citizens have full control over the county’s governance structure, rather than the constitutional model described by the state constitution. 

View of Benton County

Perfectly placed in the Willamette Valley, 90 miles south of Portland and 40 miles north of Eugene, Benton County has easy access to urban areas with ample opportunities for cultural activities. Combined with outdoor recreation galore in the Cascade Range 80 miles to the east and the Coastal Range and Pacific Ocean 50 miles west, the county’s 90,000 residents like to say they “have it all.”

Working for the County is so much more than a job. It is a chance to make a local difference - in your own life and the lives of the people around you.
