CALBO Press Release
"...The award is the result of commitment by the Board of Supervisors and staff from the Department of Development Services to deliver the highest level of customer service. I also want to point out that the award indirectly recognizes other County departments that are involved with the building permit process including Public Works, Fire, and Public Health. What’s more, none of them could function properly without the support from other County departments such as Information Systems, Auditor-Controller, Treasurer-Tax Collector, General Services, County Counsel and Administration. It really is a team effort.
Recognition like this will help the County in many ways, including economic development. In a highly competitive environment where businesses can locate anywhere, it is critical that business leaders know that Butte County is open to business and committed to making expansion and
relocation as smooth as possible...."
Paul Hahn, Chief Administrative Officer, Butte County
"... What an accomplishment! To receive this recognition for achievements in the face of significant economic, regulatory and staffing challenges, and an ambitious general plan implementation schedule, is truly commendable. I shared Paul’s letter with our community group and I am certain they will join me in offering their congratulations. You made it happen and we are so pleased for you, and for Butte County! I know we have said this over and over again at various meetings, and it has stood the test of time: we sincerely appreciate your dedication, openness and desire to deliver excellence. Our hats are off to you! "
