About Livingston County

Livingston County was named a 2022 Top Workplace by the Detroit Free Press! Based solely on employee feedback, the Top Workplace title is a badge of honor. The County’s top priority is providing effective and efficient services that improve the quality of life for all of our residents.

Livingston County covers approximately 512 square miles with 16 townships, two cities, eight villages, and a population of approximately 195,000. We have two major Interstates running through the county which have made Livingston County the fastest growing county in Michigan for several years. With Flint to the North, Ann Arbor and Ypsilanti to the South, Detroit with its many suburbs to the East, and Lansing just West of our county line, you can see why Livingston County has become a “bedroom community.”
