As part of the approval the Strategic Priorities Chart will also be made available to the public.

On Nov. 20 and 21, of 2020 council and senior administrative staff met to discuss strategic priorities and set direction for the upcoming term, explained Lonnie Kaal City Manager at the meeting Monday.

Through the sessions a process was established to ensure that the priorities identified during this session are a continued focus for administration, she said.

As discussed in the session a “Strategic Priorities Chart” was developed.

The intention is that the document will be reviewed and updated quarterly. The next update will take place at the March 22, Committee of the Whole Meeting.

The chart will be available at

Councillor Darcy Zaharia suggested Council and senior City administration might want to hold a closed door review of the document ahead of the March meeting.

Coun. Randy Goulden, followed by Coun. Dustin Brears and Quinn Haider, also suggested at some point public feedback would be a positive thing.

Coun. Darcy Zaharia agreed that there is a lot of expertise in the community, and a process to hear what people have to say is a good one.
