What are the most important priorities the City should focus on over the next two years?
YOUR INPUT ON THE CITY'S TOP PRIORITIES IS VALUABLE TO US!
As the City Council prepares for the City’s next two-year budget, a key step in the process is to set major City Goals. The community’s participation in this process includes providing your “voice” and input on the top priorities for the City in the next two-years.
The priorities shared from our community will be one of the most significant elements the City Council will receive, in addition to information on the City’s Current Projects/Programs and Fiscal Condition, during the presentation at the regular City Council meeting on January 15, 2019. These three key elements will be considered as the City Council establishes the goals and budget priorities on February 1, 2019 during a goal-setting workshop.
Following the February goal-setting session, staff will then develop work programs that clearly describe tasks, timeframes and required resources to achieve the Council's top priority goals. This kind of detailed information is essential in order to allocate limited resources to the highest priorities in a practical and achievable way over the two-year budget period.
