At one of Mike Berg's last speeches as commission chairman, he delivered a state of the county address to a room of Chamber of Commerce members, and gave his advice on what he believes the next steps for the county and commission should be: Maintaining development. "We need to continue to have an open mind, and say to ourselves let's not close the door on development, as long as we know where it's going," Berg said to the chamber. "You are vital to keeping it going."
