City Council Goals – FY 15-16

A City Council Goal Setting workshop took place on Saturday, August 22, 2015. In advance of the meeting, the City Council was given a list of approximately 60 topics of different city wide needs. Each topic placed on the list was considered important; however, each Council Member was directed to choose which topics required additional time or resources over and above what is already being done. These priorities are for the next 1-2 years. The majority of the City Council identified the following 16 priorities as their highest goals for the next 1-2 years.
