The primary goal of the Fayette County Office of Economic Development is to retain, cultivate, and expand existing trade in our community as well as to seek out, recruit, and develop new business opportunities for Fayette County.
Acting as a liaison between commerce and government, the mission of the Office of Economic Development is to assist potential business clients with the viewing/selection process of available locations, and at the same time provide information (regarding capital investment, financing, grants, job creation, stimulus programs, and venture capital).
Remember, safe digging means calling 811 or 800-362-2764 before any type of landscape or excavation work. Lines have been hit digging such things as fence post holes, anchoring supports for decks and swing sets, planting trees, removing tree roots, and driving landscaping stakes into the ground. By not calling, you're not only breaking the law, but also risking injury to yourself, your family or work crew and the surrounding community.
The Floodplain Management Office is located within the Fayette County Building and Zoning Departments. The Floodplain Manager is Jay Myers.
The Floodplain Resolution was passed in May of 1995 to participate in floodplain management. The National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) is a Federal program enabling property owners in "participating communities" to purchase insurance protection against losses from flooding. The insurance is designed to provide an insurance alternative to disaster assistance to meet the escalating costs of repairing damage to buildings and their contents caused by floods.
