Top Three Public Policy Goals:

  • * To make certain we maintain the proper level of Public Safety resources, training and preparedness. This includes making sure we meet the national average per capita as recommended by the FBI, considering the City's growth and the number of police positions required to maintain the level of service we expect.
  • * To focus on exercising our fiscal responsibility to maintain our AAA bond rating.
  • * To invest capital on critical upgrades to our storm water infrastructure due to aging systems around our City.
