Background Discussion
The Jobs Now Team, with a representative from each Department in County Government, was established in 2010.

The mission of the Jobs Now Team is to champion Manatee County as a great place to live, work, and play by cultivating relationships, facilitating partnerships, and providing business friendly customer service. 

The Rapid Response Team works hand-in-hand with the Jobs Now Team to promote economic development and job creation in Manatee County.

The Rapid Response Team includes professional staff across many Departments of County Government to ensure expedited review of all aspects of development.

This item recognizes both teams for the value they have brought to the County in support of economic development, as they have helped Manatee County become known as one of the most business friendly governments in Florida. Having a business friendly government is a key location factor for business and site selection consultants.
