DIRECTOR'S LETTER

As many of you may have heard, the Heber Valley Chamber of Commerce and Economic Development office welcomed Governor Herbert’s state-wide 25k jobs tour to the UVU Wasatch Campus.  We had large crowds of business leaders who met with dozens of organizations from around the state.  The meeting concluded with Lt. Governor Spencer Cox addressing the audience.  He commended Wasatch County on the strength of our economy and committed to provide state resources wherever needed.  While there was a lot of excitement and energy, we still have a lot to do to strengthen our economy. 

Among our greatest needs is finding qualified workers.  According to Utah’s economic data, Wasatch County currently has 15,799 jobs within the county.  Of this number, 50 percent are commuting outside of the county for employment opportunities.  Interestingly, 29 percent of our workforce commutes from other counties, while only 21 percent of our workforce lives and works in Wasatch County.  Our goal is to increase the number of people living and working locally.  As we do so, the strength of our economy will continue to improve.  We are constantly looking for ways to help fill jobs while creating new jobs within our county.  All of this is possible because of the vitality of our local business community.

Have a great month,
