Help St. Charles County Become a "Work Ready Community"
Thanks to your support, St. Charles County is getting closer to our certification as a “Work Ready Community” which will help us attract and retain businesses.

Your continued support is needed. We have just found out that  EVERY  company counts as 1 whereas before a company with less than 4 employees was only counted as .25.   BUT  you will need to pledge again.

PLEASE take a moment to pledge again :

If you have never pledged, please consider doing so. Employers embracing a common language around workforce skill requirements is a crucial part of the Work Ready Communities effort. Community goals include a measure of business engagement. It takes less than 5 minutes.
From Office Depot
As you may be aware, recent government tariffs have affected the costs of a wide array of goods throughout the marketplace.

You will see the relevant import surcharge at the item level while in cart, checkout and on order confirmation and order history. 

At  Office   Depot , we value your business. We are committed to bringing you the best products, innovation, service and value in the marketplace. This import surcharge will allow us to continue to deliver on this commitment now and into the future.
