Strategic Priorities City Manager - Home | Departments

The City Council adopted the Balance Scorecard management system in preparing and adopted the 2013 Annual Budget. This management system translates strategy into tangible objectives and measures.

City’s Strategic Goals/Focus Areas:
  • Public Safety
  • Infrastructure
  • Development of Neighborhoods
  • Economic Development
  • Business Services

Program Categories:
  • Customer Service and Needs (serve the customer)
  • Financial/Regulatory Perspective (manage resources)
  • Internal Business Process (run the business)
  • Learning and Growth (develop employees)

Departments identified services into “programs” that were directly related to one of the goals/focus area, category and performance measures.

This strategy is designed to ensure that the City

  • Achieves strategic objectives
  • Provides quality with fewer resources
  • Aligns customer priorities and expectations with the customer
  • Tracks progress
  • Evaluates process changes
  • Continually improve
  • Increases accountability
