Employing Residents

Employing our residents is vital to the health and wellbeing of our communities. Currently over 54% of residents leave the county for work. That means there is a large population unfamiliar with the great jobs available in their own communities. Getting those people into jobs locally means more community engagement, more time with their families, and higher quality of life.
