Over the past year, a group of local citizens came together to discuss citizen needs in Barbour County. Get Involved Barbour was created to help identify these needs by connecting resources in Health and Wellness, Non-profit and Faith based organizations, Government, jobs and education, and housing and finance.
In May, Get Involved Barbour held a local community fair highlighting resources and services offered to citizens of Barbour County. We are in the planning stages of the second fair, which will be located in Clio.
In addition to the resource fairs, the committee would like to host a Mayors Forum. This event will be an opportunity for the mayors of each municipality in Barbour County to come together to discuss issues in their towns and how the towns can work together to help Barbour County move into the future. This is meant to be a discussion and not a debate. Barbour County is forecast to lose 13 percent of its population by 2040. What can our towns do to help lower that number and improve the quality of life for Barbour County citizens?
Get Involved Barbour would like to invite Barbour County Citizens to Clayton City Hall on November 21. The public forum will begin at 12:00 p.m. Dr. Matt Ulmer, Extension Specialist in Community Workforce, Leadership, and Economic Development will mediate the forum.
