City Council Sets Priorities for Coming Year


Last week, the City Council met with the management team for a day and a half to talk about city accomplishments, challenges and priorities.  The Mayor, Council members, and City Manager also discussed protocols and strategic planning for the organization.  Topping the Council's priorities for the coming year include a new pavement maintenance strategy, a community visioning process, and improvements to Kimberly Park.  The Council and management team look forward to this "retreat" each year, and, as usual, it was a very productive meeting.
