Duties & Goals
The Lampasas Economic Development Corporation Board undertakes a multifaceted role in shaping the economic framework and growth of the region. Duties encompass formulating and deploying strategies for economic upliftment, such as attracting new businesses, retaining existing ones, and promoting expansions, thereby ensuring job creation and local investment. The board also takes on a governance role, developing policies, and ensuring adherence to relevant laws, while managing the fiscal health of the corporation through prudent financial planning and accountability. Furthermore, stakeholder engagement is pivotal, requiring the board to align its strategies with community, business, and government expectations, and foster partnerships that facilitate economic development. It also oversees the management of various programs aimed at meeting the economic needs of the community and ensures the area is marketed effectively to potential investors and businesses. Lastly, developing the local workforce to meet the demands of existing and prospective industries might also be within its purview, ensuring sustainable economic progression.
The Lampasas Economic Development Corporation comprises seven members, each serving two-year terms. The Corporation's business and affairs shall be managed by the Board of Directors, consisting of seven directors. These directors shall be appointed by the City Council, and at least three of them must be individuals who are not employees, officers, or members of the City Council. Every director must be a resident of the City and/or County, or as otherwise stipulated by applicable State law, and is entitled to one vote on the Corporation's business.
The governing body of the Lampasas County Commissioners Court and the Lampasas Independent School Board of Trustees may, at their discretion, appoint and/or reappoint a representative from their respective governmental units on an annual basis. These representatives shall participate in the Board's work in an 'ex officio' capacity and serve for a term of one year. Ex officio representatives are encouraged to attend and actively engage in the Board’s discussions and work. However, in compliance with State law, ex officio members shall not possess voting rights or responsibilities on the Board.
