The new contract incorporates stipulations the ERC must meet such as coming up with a revised business Plan and continuing the success and integrity of the Go Nevada County dot com website. Failure to hit target dates for action items will stop the funding.

Eve Diamond, Board Analyst for the County Supervisors worked with the ERC to draft the contract that is designed to have the Economic Resource Council and it’s programs self-sustaining at the end of the two years. The contract will not be extended beyond June of 2015.
