(GREAT FALLS) Cascade County Commissioner Jane Weber has been elected for another term.
“I’m here for the people of the county. I’m glad that the people of the county want me to continue on,” Weber said.
Weber replaced former commissioner Peggy Beltrone eight years ago. She was officially elected in 2012. Weber says she is ready to serve another six years.
“I have some projects that are not finished yet.”
Weber talked of many things she hopes to get done, but among them were cleanup projects in Black Eagle, work at the old smelter site, infrastructure projects such as the grandstands at ExpoPark, and then some work with the Business Improvement District.
“I think that we have interest with people coming in to do business here in our county. We might be able to attract some additional businesses into the county if we have planned zoning available,” Weber said.
As a commissioner, Weber will continue to work with all departments in the county.
“I think a lot of people don’t realize that the county commissioners are actually direct supervisors of all of the department heads in the county. We are the ones that work directly with the department heads to package the 70 million plus budget that we have each year,” Weber said.
She suggests that anyone with questions or comments to reach out to elected officials in the community.
“Were here 40 hours a week. People are more than welcome to stop in or make an appointment to see any or all of the commissioners anytime. You don’t have to come to a commission meeting to do that,” Weber said.
