While there will always be new challenges for the Boone County Council, there are long-term issues that continue to need attention. These are important issues Steve Jacob will continue to support:
SUPPORT OF SCHOOL SAFETY
Four years ago, Steve Jacob, working with both Boone County Council and Commissioners, our county and local law enforcement offices and Boone County town leaders implemented a LIT (local income tax) incentive that led the way for funding of today’s county-wide SRO program with a safety officer in every Boone County School to keep our award winning schools safe.
SUPPORT OF FIRST RESPONDERS
Steve promoted and provided leadership to put more deputies on the street supporting Sheriff Mike Nielsen’s Five Year strategic plan to keep our communities safe. Steve was recently honored to be named Business Partner of Year by the Zionsville Fire Department.
Throughout his career of public service Steve has continued to bring efficiencies to local government and protecting taxpayer dollars.
Steve will continue to work with all parties and organizations involved for the betterment of everyone in Boone County by working for reasonable long-lasting solutions for the good of our county.
Steve believes in total transparency and public access to Boone County Council meetings and the issues discussed. During his time on the Council, meetings have been scheduled both in mornings and evenings to accommodate public attendance.
In addition, all Council meetings minutes are now easily accessed on the Boone County website: www.boonecounty.in.gov/Offices/County-Council/Council-Meetings/Minutes/2018
“I try and take a pragmatic approach to every issue, with a consideration for the greater good of our community. I respect the fact that good people can disagree at times and try to build consensus and reach a compromise when this occurs.” Steve Jacob
