Public Engagement/Education Workgroup - February 2020 Meeting

Climate Engaging the public regarding climate change and the County’s aggressive climate goals is vital to the success of all other County efforts. If the public does not understand the issues the County is trying to address, and the policies and programs that may be put in place, the County’s GHG reduction efforts will not reach their full potential. This workgroup will identify opportunities to communicate with and educate residents about the urgency of taking climate action; advise on effective communications strategies for engagement with diverse audiences; identify partners and linkages to other issues that people care about (such as public health); identify and promote resources that people can use to reduce GHG emissions and adapt to a changing climate at the household level; and identify mechanisms to conduct on-going “climate conversations” with residents. , Meetings are free and open to the public.

Small Business Loan Applications- Why Are They Asking Me That?

Business Portal Events There are more financing options for small businesses available today than ever before, and that includes online lending. What differentiates online lenders from traditional lenders, like banks, is that online lenders typically have a quicker and easier process, from application to funding—making the application process a day or two rather than weeks or months with traditional lenders. What’s more, many online lenders do not require a business plan or specific assets be identified as collateral to secure the loan. Category: Business. Area: All.
