At our January goal setting session, the Council took a look at the 2009 goals and began to revise them. What were goals are now called Strategic Directions to reflect their broad, on-going nature. The Strategic Directions are:
- Continuously improving communication with citizen advisory groups and community
- Building a foundation for a vibrant community where resources are carefully managed and preserved and which integrates economic, environmental and community values for long term success
- Providing city facilities to ensure excellent service to our citizens within the financial limitations of the city
- The Council will implement a systematic approach to problem solving and decision-making
Jim Pokorney and I have been tasked with simplifying, prioritizing, and organizing the goals and action steps under each of these direction. More to come after we finish our assignment and the Council weighs in again.
