Ventura, Calif.— Plans to increase workforce development in Ventura County through 2021 will be discussed at a Town Hall meeting on January 31, 2019. The plans, one regional and one local, were originally created in 2017 by the Workforce Development Board of Ventura County (WDB) as part of the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act. The public is invited to discuss the plans’ modifications at a town hall meeting Thursday, January 31 from 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. at the America’s Job Center of California (2901 N.
