“The Jefferson County Board of Supervisors on Tuesday amended a contract for services for an Economic Development Capital Campaign to switch providers from Power 10 to Convergent.

The change was approved in a 26-1 vote, with Supervisor Mike Kelly voting ‘no.’

Since 2014, the Jefferson County Economic Development Consortium (JCEDC) has been working toward increased engagement of the private sector in promoting economic development in the county, which includes a five-year economic development strategic plan. The objective is to increase economic development responsiveness; improve visibility of the county statewide, regionally and globally; and to align area communities, businesses and economic development partners with the significant benefits outlined in the five-year plan.”
