The construction of the Pathfinder Park Community Center is well underway. The building is coming together quickly. We are anticipating for the project to be completed the end of October and will begin moving in to the building in November.

We have kicked off the 2022 budget cycle. We started the process in August and complete it by the middle of October for adoption in December.

We are still going through the process of refinancing the 2013 Certificates of Participation. This will save the County approximately $3 million in interest.

We have hired Rachel Miller as our Grant Administrator. She started on August 23 and has hit the ground running.

We are looking for a Director of Planning & Zoning. If anyone knows of someone with experience send them our way. I want to commend the department for the hard work they are doing to try to keep up with things. I appreciate the public’s patience as we fill the vacancies in that department.

We are working with the State Department of Revenue to try to obtain reports to be able to categorize our sales tax revenues and break them out by local versus online collections. As of now the state doesn’t have a report that can show this information, so we are working to combine multiple reports to determine this split and be able to analyze the information further.
