Local governments use strategic planning as a tool to set goals, connect to stakeholders, track progress, and communicate results. Approving Council goals and objectives is the first phase of building a performance management system that links Council goals to staff work plans and communicates outcomes to the public.
On June 26, 2019, the Town Council approved seven goal areas and nineteen objectives as an operational framework for the Town. The Strategic Goals guide the development of the Town Budget and Departmental Business Plans, which drive the allocation of resources and staff time.
