Starting in 2009, the City Council commenced a strategic planning process to establish Three Year Goals to gain consensus on the City’s Core Values and Priority Strategic Objectives. This process is ongoing and is a critical component of maintaining the City in a fiscally sustainable manner.
Each year, the Council, City Manager, and Department Heads meet to reaffirm the City Council's Mission and Core Values and update the three-year goals and to come to consensus on new strategic objectives that year.
