City Manager's January 2015 Report to City Council

Posted on July 16, 2015 at 3:19 PM by City Staff

 

City Manager’s Report
January 21, 2015 
 

Annual Report

Staff is currently preparing its Annual Report for distribution at the February 18, 2015 Council Meeting.  The title of the 2014 Report is “Planning Ahead,” as much of Staff’s time was dedicated to the General Plan Amendments and related Zoning Amendments and Development Agreements.  The Annual Report provides an opportunity for Staff to present an overview of the prior year and afford the Mayor, Council and citizens the opportunity to provide suggestions or comments on the accomplishments of the Staff.

FY 2016 Preliminary Budget

As difficult as it is to believe, it is that time again for our City to begin its planning for the FY 2016 Preliminary Budget.  Staff has been examining its needs for next year’s budget and will review its line items with our Finance Director and me prior to presentation of budget binders to Council the week of March 4, 2015.
