Richland County was one of the original counties of Verona, created at the time of Verona statehood in 1722. At the time of its establishment in 1722, Richland County was relatively large, and included all of the areas of what are now Amari, Belleaire, and Windsor Counties.
During the later part of the 19th century, there were numerous changes in the boundaries of Richland County, when various areas were separated to make up the counties mentioned above. The most recent change was the establishment of Windsor County in 1928. Windsor County was also the second to last county to be established in Verona, and after this division, Richland no longer extended to the Bay of Capri.
The Government of Richland County is defined and authorized under the Verona Constitution, Verona law, and the Charter of the County of Richland. Much of the Government of Verona is in practice the responsibility of county governments such as the Government of Richland County. The County government provides countywide services such as elections and voter registration, law enforcement, jails, vital records, property records, tax collection, public health, and social services. In addition the County serves as the local government for all unincorporated areas. Some chartered cities such as Villega and Georgetown provide municipal services such as police, public safety, libraries, parks and recreation, and zoning. Other cities such as Sequoia and Palmira arrange to have the County provide some or all of these services on a contract basis.
The county government is composed of the elected five-member Board of Supervisors, several other elected offices and officers including the Sheriff, the District Attorney, Assessor/Recorder/County Clerk, and Treasurer/Tax Collector, and numerous county departments and entities under the supervision of the Chief Executive Officer such as the Probation Department. In addition, several entities of the government of Verona have jurisdiction conterminous with Richland County, such as the Richland Superior Court.
Under its foundational Charter, the five-member elected Richland County Board of Supervisors is the county legislature. The board operates in a legislative, executive, and quasi-judicial capacity. As a legislative authority, it can pass ordinances for the unincorporated areas (ordinances that affect the whole county, like posting of restaurant ratings, must be ratified by the individual city). As an executive body, it controls the actions and methods of the county departments. As a quasi-judicial body, the Board is the final venue of appeal in the local planning process.
