  1. NEW BUSINESS:          
  1. Good Neighbor Policy:
  2. Council Goals: Councilor Slattery at meeting to discuss the Councils goal setting session on January 26th. Slattery explains that last year with new Council members and a new City Administrator the Council decided to keep the old goals in place and not make any changes. Slattery would like to see the goal setting session to be inclusive of all Commissions and not be aspirations. Slattery would like to start from scratch with goal setting and does not know specifically what the City Administrator has in store for the session. Slattery hopes for an effective goal setting process and the new established goals help feed the budget in order to accomplish the goals in an appropriate time frame. Slattery also states that he would like to see a comprehensive City budget plan developed as part of a City goal. Commission is concerned with bottlenecks in City Departments; examples include waiting for a final lease drafted by the Legal Department for the FBO RFP. The lease has been back and forth between the Commission and Legal over the past year and now its almost complete but stalled in Legal. The Commission feels like these bottlenecks are an issue that needs to be resolved. Slattery believes that a Council goal should be to remove system bottlenecks through process improvements or by adding employees to better maintain and complete workflow in City Departments. Slattery understands that each Department does a large volume of work and that process improvements/new employees will help everyone meet level of service and Council goals. Commission asks about liaison appointments and when will they happen? Slattery states that the Mayor appoints the Council Liaisons and that will happen after the goal setting session. Slattery enjoys the Airport Commission because he has an interest in aviation and would like to continue being the liaison, but understands the Airport Commission would like the liason in attendance in as many meetings as possible. Slattery explains that between other meetings and his teaching schedule that he cannot attend all meetings but does stay informed on Commission issues. Slattery also states that the
