(Victor Valley)– Continuing to support county employees affected by the December 2 terrorist attack and assisting in the overall recovery of the community were among the goals and objectives for the coming year unanimously adopted Tuesday (March 1) by the Board of Supervisors.
“The strength and resiliency of our people is an inspiration to us all,” said Board of Supervisors Chairman James Ramos. “We are committed to continuing to help our employees and our community recover from this attack and use what we learn to help anyone else who might experience a similar tragedy.”
Implementing the Countywide Vision, increasing jobs and economic value, and ensuring the development of a well-planned, balanced, and sustainable county were also among the goals and objectives established by the board.

–Implement the Countywide Vision
