SAN BERNARDINO • Creating, maintaining and growing jobs in San Bernardino County were among 35 goals adopted by the Board of Supervisors at their meeting Tuesday.
The county's policy and direction are set by the Board of Supervisors and carried out by the CEO and county staff.
“The board has given us clear direction,” County CEO Greg Devereaux stated in a news release.
The goals and objectives are organized under eight categories and were developed during the board’s Jan. 22 closed-session annual evaluation of the CEO’s performance. The county CEO requested the evaluation as part of his contract, the release stated. Helping county residents achieve self-sufficiency and creating a business-friendly environment are the common themes of the goals.
The county will incorporate the plans into the 2013-14 budget, and will provide the Board of Supervisors with quarterly updates to ensure implementation, according to Devereaux.
The county’s primary goal remains implementation of the Countywide Vision, with a focus on creating a county where those who reside and invest here can prosper and achieve well-being, according to the news release.
Board of Supervisors Chair Janice Rutherford encouraged the county’s approximately 19,000 employees to embrace the goals and objectives, according to the release.
“We have amazing staff in this county,” Rutherford stated. “I know you have ideas on how we can help make our residents more self-sufficient. We want to hear those ideas.”
