The County of Colusa is a general law county, nestled in the heart of the Sacramento Valley approximately 60 miles north of Sacramento and 100 miles northeast of the San Francisco Bay Area. It is a vibrant community rich in history and tradition, offering a wonderful environment in which to live, work and play. The County, with approximately 22,000 residents, includes two incorporated cities: Colusa, which is the county seat, and Williams. The local economy is largely agriculturally based, producing crops valued at more than $900 million each year and exporting farm commodities throughout the United States and to about seventy countries worldwide.
Colusa County's residents enjoy the best of both worlds: ready access to major metropolitan areas while taking advantage of affordable housing associated with the area's friendly, small town environment. The region is blessed with sweeping mountain vistas, open space, and clear skies.
Some County government business is still conducted within the beloved Antebellum court house which was built in 1861 and has operated continuously ever since. The County's annual General Fund budget is approximately $35.7 million and the total budget is about $113.1 million. The workforce is comprised of 17 department heads and approximately 400 full-time equivalent positions. The County is governed by a five member Board of Supervisors, each of whom represents a district based on an equal representation of the County's population. The Board of Supervisors serve as the legislative body for Colusa County and provide policy direction for all branches of County government including the County Administrative Officer. Each Board member is elected to a four- year term by the voters in their district.
Colusa County also offers many diverse outdoor recreational opportunities and is considered to be a sportsman's paradise. Portions of five national protected areas are located within the county including: the Butte Sink Wildlife Refuge, Colusa National Wildlife Refuge, Delevan National Wildlife Refuge, Mendocino National Forest, and the Sacramento National Wildlife Refuge. Recreational opportunities such as hiking, bird watching, camping, and water sports abound. The Sacramento River, which meanders through the County, along with local lakes, offer world class fishing.

Established in 1850 as one of the original 27 counties created by the first state legislature , Colusa is centrally located approximately 60 miles north of Sacramento. Interstate 5 offers a north / south route through the county. Our location is approximately:

2.5 hours from Lake Tahoe
One hour from downtown Sacramento
Three hours from the Fort Bragg-Mendocino coastline
Two hours from San Francisco

Colusa County's economy is based on agriculture and agricultural-related businesses. As you travel throughout the basin floor, you'll see a variety of crops such as: alfalfa, almonds, Asian pears, beans, corn, cotton and rice.
Our country roads are lined with various natural and man-made waterways where you'll see an abundance of wildlife, including, but not limited to: blue herons, cranes, deer, ducks, fox, geese, pheasants, possums, raccoons and swans.
