Citizinvestor Fundraising

The Commissioners believe that WE ALL can be an integral part in helping to develop our communities and county.  Why not donate to projects which are close to your heart (or perhaps close to your residency)?  With your assistance, we can complete area projects that may, otherwise, remain unstarted or unfinished due to a lack of funding. 

Haven't heard of this program?  Read this one-page PDF for a quick overview.
