The City utilizes an integrated performance management philosophy called FOCUS. This philosophy integrates strategic planning and performance-based budgeting to drive results to meet current and future needs of our community.
FOCUS monitors and supports the “Golden Thread”, which is our term for total alignment of priorities for the City workforce from individual performance goals, program performance measures, work system principles and City Council Strategic Results and milestones.
The foundation for this work is the City Council Strategic Plan (CCSP). The CCSP is our guiding document that drives daily operations of the City by identifying key operational objectives, prioritizing change initiatives and addressing resource allocation.
The CCSP has a six-year time horizon, and is developed by the City Council in collaboration with the City leadership team. The 2020 – 2025 CCSP was adopted by resolution on September 16, 2019 .
