The Otsego County Home Page has been created for you to easily travel through several areas. Perhaps if you’re an “out-of-towner”, you will want to go directly to our Vistor link; if you’re considering moving to our County, you’ll want to find out about our employment opportunities, public services, health and social services. If you’re lucky enough to already be a resident and need a phone number to call with a question, you can review the directory. Whoever you are, whatever your interest, we hope we’ve been able to provide you with assistance at this website.
