In May 2021, the City Council met and refined the top-level Policy Goals for the Town. The Council established seven (7) Policy Level Goal Areas for the Town - Goal Areas A through G. Within each Goal Area the Council identified specific Policy Level Goals and select Strategies and Objectives in support of those Policy Level Goals. In addition to Council-Identified Strategies and Objectives, staff incorporates additional Objectives and Tasks that align with the overall Goal and are consistent with the Town’s basic mission and operational philosophies.
This Calendar Year 2021 Goals Report outlines each Goal Area and lists the specific actions and tasks that have occurred throughout the year in support of the Goal and Council-Identified Strategy or Objective. Where actions and tasks fall outside of the specific strategies and objectives set by the Council, they are listed separately at the end of each item as Policy Related activities during the Reporting Year. Whereas the overall Policy Level Goals can often encompass multiple years of focus, specific objectives and actions are often singular, discrete tasks that occur once or can occur annually.
Each City Council Staff Report now also includes a "Goal Alignment" section that identifies the specific Goal(s) that the Report or effort supports. The seven (7) Goal Areas identified by the Council are:
- Goal A - Maintain Fiscal Transparency
- Goal B - Preserve Small Town Character and Quality of Life
- Goal C - Create and Expand the Town Center and Library
- Goal D - Manage Circulation and Improve Safety
- Goal E - Strengthen Community Engagement and Transparency
- Goal F - Be Forward-Thinking, Well-Managed, and Well-Planned
- Goal G - Emergency Preparedness - Be Prepared
The Report goes through each Goal Area and each of its Council-Identified Strategies and Objectives. The Report lists the various tasks and actions that have occurred in the last year supportive of the overall Policy Goal.
