Economic Development & Energy
A strong local economy is crucial for the wellbeing and future growth of our communities. A diverse and thriving economy creates jobs, contributes to the vibrancy of our main streets and downtowns, and enhances our quality of life. It also generates revenue that is essential to provide public services and maintain critical infrastructure.
Counties play an important role in promoting economic growth. They attract new companies, create a supportive business environment, and offer training and education to align the skills of the workforce with the needs of existing and emerging industries. County governments also market their assets to attract tourists and invest in transportation networks, telecommunications, and other infrastructure to support economic activity.
