Our city should not only excel at the basics, but also aspire to accomplish the big things. Our families deserve timely waste and recycling services. They also should receive water bills that are easy to access and read. Filling city staff vacancies and enhancing communication channels between community organizations and city hall will also be top priorities.
We must protect and maintain the internet assets that our city currently owns. Additionally, our city websites must not only be updated and easy to use, but also be a helpful resource for city services. We must also utilize our websites as a platform to enhance city government accountability and transparency.
To turn things around in City Government, we must do a better job of attracting and retaining talent. The City may not be able to compete with the private sector in terms of compensation, but we can improve in other key areas.
