Jobs and Economic Opportunities Committee

What is the Jobs and Economic Opportunities Committee?

The Jobs and Economic Opportunities Committee (JEOC) was created by resolution on March 24, 2015. The JEOC consists of volunteer members appointed by the Board of County Commissioners (BCC), representing a group of professionals from diverse industries. This committee requires a minimum of five (5) members, however, we have appointed four (4) additional members to keep the committee at capacity of nine (9) members. View the resolution.

The purpose of the JEOC is to:

1.  Receive updates on the status of projects funded through the JEO Trust Fund Program;

2.  Receive quarterly updates on JEO Trust Fund revenues and expenditures;

3.  Hear and make recommendations on JEO Trust Fund Program marketing initiatives and campaigns; and

4.  Present an annual report to the Board of County Commissioners as to whether the JEO Trust Fund Program is progressing in the desired direction.
