Our representatives on the Board of Supervisors, School Board, and Chamber of Commerce Board are dedicated to maintaining our rural way of life and also placing us in a position to compete nationally and globally in the marketplace for economic growth and new jobs. Like most counties, we struggled with the economic downturn, but we chose to proceed on constructing a new high school that opened in fall 2012.
Our County and our Chamber are always looking for strategic partnerships and alliances. If you would like to join us please “Contact Us”.
