County Government 101: Economic Development

Carroll County Government this week released the latest installment of “Carroll 101,” a series of presentations to provide basic overviews and highlights of County departments and divisions.

The County releases a new episode every week, and each session is led by one of the County’s 13 directors. This week’s presentation covers the Department of Economic Development and is led by Director John T. Lyburn, Jr.

According to Carroll County Government:

Each session, approximately 15 minutes in length, will provide the ins and outs of the county departments and promotes learning everything citizens want to know about local government but were afraid to ask. The presentations focus on major areas of Carroll County Government including management and budget, fire & emergency services, land and resource management, citizen services, recreation & parks, economic development and public works as well as public safety, human resources, county attorney, comptroller, planning, and technology services.
