Each year the City Council convenes in advance of the new fiscal year to develop a set of goals, projects, and initiatives to be implemented in the following fiscal year.
The Work Plan is not intended to be comprehensive of all work underway by the City. To help illustrate, an “iceberg” analogy has been used to frame the discussion-the projects and initiatives of highest visibility and priority to the Council are those found above the water line; the myriad other activities such as patrolling traffic, responding to 911 calls, issuing building permits, managing the waste water plant, paying bills, filling potholes, hiring new staff, advising staff and Council on legal issues, holding recreation classes, etc., often are not as visible and could be described as below the water line. Capturing the highly visible projects and initiatives in a Work Plan is an effective way to focus City attention and resources on the right priorities.
The City Council held a special meeting on March 3, 2018 for its annual goal-setting session, and discussion continued at a special meeting on April 24, 2018. The resulting Goals and Council-Prioritized Projects and Initiatives for fiscal year 2018-19 were adopted by the City Council at the April 24, 2018 meeting.
The City Council held special meetings on February 3 - 4, 2017 for its annual goal-setting sessions The resulting Goals and Work Plan for fiscal year 2017-18 was adopted by the City Council at its February 13, 2017 meeting.
For fiscal year 2016-17, the Council began the goal-setting process in February and completed it in July. The resulting Goals and Work Plan for fiscal year 2016-17 was adopted by City Council at its meeting on 10/24/2016.
