Final Funding for "Jobs on Main" Receives Unanimous, Bipartisan Approval

Final Funding for

Monroe County Executive Cheryl Dinolfo announced the final funding required for the Jobs on Main initiative received unanimous, bipartisan approval at the February 12th meeting of the County Legislature.

“When local, national, and global employers come to Monroe County to talk about investing here, we want our Economic Development offices to say something about our community,” said Dinolfo. “We want them to feel the vibrancy of Monroe County and to know that we are open for business. The Jobs on Main initiative will give our economic development efforts that competitive advantage and help us continue creating more jobs for County residents. I thank the County Legislature for its unanimous, bipartisan support of this program.”

The Jobs on Main initiative relocates the County’s Economic Development offices from the 8th floor to the 1st and 2nd floors of the City Place office building. The initiative makes the County’s job creation efforts more accessible to residents and employers alike. The relocation will deliver better access, a more convenient layout, collaborative meeting space, prominent exterior signage, and a next-generation feel.

Renovations for the 1st and 2nd floors of City Place will begin this Spring and are expected to be complete in the Fall. The funding approved by the Legislature last night is for the final $1.7 million needed for the renovation, bringing the total project cost to $4.1 million. Monroe County purchased the City Place building in 2017 for $10 million, a move that will save taxpayers nearly $1 million per year.
