SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (KY3) - The Greene County Presiding Commissioner delivered the State of the County on Thursday morning.

Presiding Commissioner Bob Dixon highlighted the county’s unemployment rate at 2.5%. He also credited many small business and workforce development programs for attracting talent to the county.

“We work on a daily basis with the Missouri Job Center, which is a collaborative partnership of seven counties in the region,” said Presiding Commissioner Bob Dixon. “So we’ll continue to work with all of our partners to make sure that we’re ready for all the jobs that many businesses are anxiously searching for employees and talent for.”

Dixon says the commission will work on the campus master plan in the new year, which includes the old jail downtown, new courtroom space, and a new home for the county’s youth academy. That plan should take about three years to complete.
