Opening on Pasco’s Jobs and Economic Opportunities Committee

The Jobs and Economic Opportunities Committee (JEOC) is looking for new volunteers to participate in the committee that oversees the use of the Jobs and Economic Opportunities Trust Fund (JEOTF) portion of Penny for Pasco.

Responsibilities of JEOC members include ensuring Penny for Pasco spending meets the requirements to promote projects creating new jobs and economic growth.  The Committee consists of nine members, appointed by the Board of County Commissioners (BCC), representing diverse knowledge and expertise from each of the following areas: finance/banking, agriculture, real estate, manufacturing and other private industries.

Anyone interested in serving on the JEOC is asked to submit a letter of interest and resume to Economic Growth Manager David Engel at: [email protected]

Applications are being accepted through June 18, 2021.

The Committee meets, at minimum, on a quarterly basis and presents annual updates to the BCC.  Selected members will serve a one or two-year term, depending upon industry.

Pasco County residents first passed the Penny for Pasco local government infrastructure surtax in 2004 to pay for county, city and School Board improvements.  The JEOTF portion, adopted in 2015, is estimated to generate more than $60 million in revenue to be used for target industry job creation and economic development projects designed to improve the local economy.
