Frederick County Commissioners and staff recently celebrated accomplishing six strategic goals that were put in place when the current Commissioners took office four years ago. As reported by the Frederick News-Post,
The current Board of County Commissioners developed the list of objectives during a meeting at Pinecliff Park shortly after they took office in 2010. Though the plan has been tweaked a couple of times, it remained largely unchanged, said County Manager Lori Depies.
The six goals are job growth, predictability for businesses, exploring public-private partnerships, enhancing public safety, sustainable growth coupled with agricultural preservation and improving transportation networks.
During the commission meeting, Commission President Blaine Young commended staff who helped accomplishment these goals.
Among others, he commended emergency management director Jack Markey for continuing the prior board’s work on upgrading emergency radio system; Denise Pouget for becoming the first countywide fire chief; human resources director Mitch Hose for working with employees to strengthen the pension plan; and acting finance director Erin White and budget officer Regina Howell for helping the county earn its best-ever bond ratings.
