Report focuses on ‘how local government works for the taxpayer’
This week, Sarasota County staff released the annual review of the county’s most important projects, initiatives and accomplishments from the previous year. “As part of the county’s ongoing commitment to a culture of sustainability,” a news release notes, the report is being made available digitally “to expand its online audience, while reducing waste and distribution costs.”
The release adds, “In addition to focusing on how local government works for the taxpayer, the 2020 Year in Review contains a comprehensive look at the county’s ongoing response to COVID-19. “
County Administrator Jonathan Lewis pointed out in the release that those efforts helped maintain service levels and a strong financial outlook, as well as “foster community values during unprecedented times.”
“The women and men working at Sarasota County have truly excelled at providing the same world-class service the community has come to expect while faced with the challenges, and unknowns, of COVID-19,” Lewis added in the release. “Through the leadership of our County Commission, we will continue to find innovative solutions, such as this new electronic format, to highlight our successes.”
A select number of printed companion booklets are available at county libraries while supplies last, the release notes. Residents may view the report by clicking on this link.
