As part of our efforts to meet our strategic goal of a High Performing City Government Organization, all City departments develop a Five Year Strategic Business Plan. Strategic Business Plans are used by departments to document all the services they offer in detail. The plans are similar to the City’s Strategic Plan in that they focus on the goals, initiatives, projects and key performance indicators associated with moving their department’s mission forward. The business plans provide accountability and set service level expectations based on funding provided in the fiscal year.
Strategic Business plans are updated annually as part of the ongoing budget process and are utilized to identify key issues and future needs for financial forecasting. Each department presents their plan annually at the City Council’s Winter Retreat. All Strategic Business Plans must align with the City’s Strategic Plan and are a critical component of our strategic planning process.
