County government plays an important role in the lives of Macon County residents, providing services throughout their lives.
Employees operating under the auspices of the County Commission record births, adoptions, marriages and divorces, provide health care to indigents, certify deaths and probate wills of the deceased. Residents also depend upon county departments to record land records, register voters, conduct elections and maintain rural roads.
Macon County personnel carry out responsibilities in the justice system of the various courts, law enforcement, probation and housing of inmates awaiting trial or punishment, public safety, health, welfare, recreational and senior citizens services as well as various administrative functions.
