Each fall the City Department Heads, City Manager and City Council undertake a review of the overall City priorities and direction. Working through the months of November and December, the existing Goal Plan is reviewed, and new goal proposals are developed and evaluated. The process ends with the formal adoption of the organization mission statement, goals and strategic work plans
In Fiscal Year 2009-10, an annual process began, culminating in the Adopted Budget, to identify revenue enhancements, and expenditure reductions, call Gap Reduction Measures, needed to keep the City’s budget in balance in response to the state wide funding crisis and its effect on the City. Included here are the Gap Reduction Measures from each fiscal year.
