The typical process for council to approve the annual goals and objectives starts with a workshop at the beginning of the year. In 2020 the workshop was held on February 1. The process would then require staff to develop a work plan which includes actions steps and a schedule. This work plan would then be presented to council for review and approval with the last step being a resolution of adoption typically in April. However, the COVID-19 pandemic has upended that process.
The city will no doubt see lasting impacts from the pandemic and will have significant work ahead to meet both the immediate needs and reallocate resources to maintain services in the longer term. As a result, staff has revised the work plan and will continue to monitor all items and will work to provide another update in July or August.
