Council reviewed the strategic planning goals and objectives that had been agreed to at its meeting of July 11, 2014, and went through each set of goals and objectives to determine which should remain on the list and which should be removed. After discussion, Council agreed to the changes shown in the attached document. Council agreed that they would send ideas for specific actions to achieve objectives to City Administrator Dave Kanner, who would compile them into the document and seek staff feedback on what staff believes it can do.
Council agreed to meet again on August 28, from 8:30 to 12:30 to review that input.
Mr. Kanner noted that the City is allowed to ask three local questions in the citizen survey that will be conducted by the National Research Center this fall.
