Dear Residents, Business Owners, Visitors and Colleagues: 


In order to maintain our transparent approach and good governance, below you will find the FY 2015 2nd Quarter Organizational Goals and Objectives Updates. These goals where created based on a collaborative dialogue that occurred with members of the Community, the Chamber of Commerce, the Haines City Economic Development Council (EDC), the City Commission and City Staff. 


The goal behind furnishing this information to you, the public, is to highlight the progress that this organization is making towards completing the objectives as set forth in the original document (FY 2015 Budget). A budget is a spending plan that is intended for the purposes of addressing the needs and desires of the Community; which is discussed at great lengths, and is ultimately adopted by the City Commission. This document ("The Budget") is a living document that changes as situations arise. However, in order to keep the public fully abreast, you are free to peruse the document to see how we are doing. 


At the conclusion of the FY 2015 Budget, we will grade ourselves in order to determine our progress in fulfilling the goals, objectives and initiatives as set forth. Thank you to all the Directors, Managers, Supervisors and all the City Staff for your role in making Haines City a great community to live, work and play. "Connectivity enables transparency for a better government, education, and health." - Bill Gates.  


Respectfully submitted,


Jonathan E. Evans, MPA, MBA, ICMA-CM
