City Goals

Plans & Strategy

The City Council and staff develop a two-year Budget Work Plan to coincide with the operating budget. The process begins with identifying the budget objectives, which help the City with its overall strategic plans.

From the budget objectives, City staff members develop a list of actions to take to reach each objective and the overall goal. Departments are assigned as responsible for reporting progress on each action. The reports are sent to the City Council quarterly and are available for the public to view through the City's Progress Portal website
