Pasco Jobs and Economic Opportunities Committee Volunteers may Apply by May 1

By Florida's Original NatureCoaster™ Posted on April 29, 2018

The Jobs and Economic Opportunities Committee (JEOC) is looking for new volunteer members 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 for job creation 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: [email protected]

Applications are being accepted through May 1, 2018.

The Committee meets, at minimum, on a quarterly basis and presents annual updates to the BCC.  Each member of the committee serves a two-year term.

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 over $50 million in revenue to be used for target industry job creation and economic development projects designed to improve the local economy.
