The top goal for Jefferson County for 2011 is bringing more jobs to the area. County Commissioner John Hatfield says they are working with Economic Development of Central Oregon (EDCO) in hopes of attracting new family wage jobs to area. Another big goal is making sure that county government is efficiently serving the public during these very lean times. Hatfield says:  "Maintain our efficiency and maintain the services people want on a declining budget, because property taxes are based on whichever is lower assessed value or retail market value and for the first time in a long time or ever the retail market value is lower than the assessed value which means the property taxes will be going down, which is good for the people but it puts stress on us providing services."  The third goal is to try and get an operating levy passed for the jail - the current one expires at the end of June.
