    Growing Pasco County

    Read More

    Pasco County can remake itself as an agritourism destination where visitors flock to U-pick farms, shop for locally produced olive oil, and get a close-up look at where their milk and ice cream come from.

    It can reimagine its transportation to integrate improved roads, bike paths and pedestrian walkways in a carefully considered plan for moving people from A to B. Pasco’s eastside “food deserts” could recede beneath the success of a community garden that makes fresh produce available to folks who currently are reliant on convenience stores for much of their diet.

    It’s an ambitious agenda, and it’s just dreams right now. But part of the reason UF/IFAS has such success in building communities is that we help communities believe in themselves.

    It happened in the story we call “Clamelot” – how IFAS Extension work contributed to the economic revival of Cedar Key into a clam farming capital. It happened in Live Oak, where IFAS Extension brought together and inspired local leaders to invest in remaking their community after the devastation wrought by Tropical Storm Debby in 2010.

    Onsite and Online Ethics Course

    Read More

    Did you know you are required to take four hours of Ethics education EACH calendar year by the Florida Legislature?

    FAC offers the solution for your 2016 Ethics needs --ONSITE and ONLINE Ethics Workshops!  Both are available at the new lower price of $75.

    During the 2013 Legislative Session, the Florida legislature passed ethics legislation requiring that Commissioners and other Constitutional Officers take four hours of Ethics programming each calendar year.  For the last twenty years, FAC has offered a mandatory Ethics course as part of FAC’s Certified County Commissioner (CCC) Program that meets the requirements addressed in this legislation.

    FAC continues to offer this course and has added several programming options to make it convenient for Commissioners, County Staff and Constitutional Officers to complete this Ethics, Public Records & Sunshine Law requirement.  You will receive certificates of Completion once you attend the entire workshop.

    Florida County Government Guide

    Read More

    Our Members asked for it, and we are pleased to present the comprehensive guide on all aspects of Florida county government, including Florida’s history, county government structure, leadership and management, budgeting methods and strategies, economic development and growth management, human resources, purchasing and contracting, health and safety, and infrastructure.   The Florida Association of Counties published the first version of the Florida County Government Guide in 2010, with a plan to update it biennially, prior to each election.  In addition to being a great reference for county commissioners and staff, the Guide also serves as the curriculum for the Certified County Commissioner (CCC) Program.

    There are two options for purchasing the Guide:  FAC Members may order the book version for $50 or get the .pdf version which may be shared with everyone in your County for $200.  Non-members may order the printed copy for $80.  Order your copy today!
