National County Government Month: 

Jones County’s Collaborative Success

 

National County Government Month celebrates the vital role county governments play in our communities. This week, we shine a spotlight on Jones County, NC, where leaders like County Manager Kyle Smith, Finance Director Blake Batchelor, and Chairman Frank Emory embody the spirit of progress through collaboration.

Their success encapsulates the National Association of Counties’ #ForwardTogether initiative, dedicated to fostering trust and implementing innovative solutions. Recently, we had the privilege of catching up with Kyle Smith during the NACo Legislative Conference in Washington, DC, where he shared insights into their collaboration with our team at three+one.

Kyle highlighted the invaluable partnership and one-on-one connection with our team, emphasizing the exceptional work of Mike Abbott, who recently presented to the board of commissioners and him in November 2023. This collaboration has been instrumental in effectively sharing Jones County’s financial story with the board and the community.

The impact of this collaboration has generated remarkable growth for the county. As Kyle Smith put it, “cashVest really streamlines our financial picture and shows us our growth, keeping our confidence high.” This financial clarity not only benefits the county’s leadership but also reflects positively on its staff and finance office, and fosters trust with the community. 

Looking ahead, Jones County sees immense potential in leveraging its financial gains for greater community impact. With the support of collaborative initiatives like cashVest, they are poised to achieve even greater milestones and make a lasting difference in their community.

The success story of Jones County exemplifies the power of collaboration, innovation, and effective financial management in driving progress at the county level. As we celebrate National County Government Month, let us draw inspiration from their journey and continue to work #ForwardTogether towards building stronger, more resilient communities.
