The ultimate goal of these discussions and workshops is to align the City’s resources, capacity and finances to meet tomorrow’s demand. At the meeting, staff reported on current demands, service levels, resources, challenges and possible routes to take in the future to meet future demand.
The reports span the last 10 years, looking at how City operations and finances were affected through the recession until now. An additional report included a study of finances over the last 10 years, including revenues and expenditures.
Lastly, council reviewed a draft of strategic priorities, formed at the strategic planning session held in February. These priorities, once approved, will be key factors in decisions that will need to be made at the upcoming budget review meeting. Council will be voting to approve these priorities at an upcoming Council meeting.
