My Top 3 Priorities

  • Budget: We currently have a balanced budget but that won't stay that way past 2019 unless we seek other methods of revenue sources.
  • Homelessness: This has increased but we need to continue with the efforts and program with the Downtown Streets Team and help prevent the situation from increasing
  • Employee Retention/Public Safety. We need to retain employees to be able to provide good customer service. Public Safety is the highest priority and we need to maintain the low crime our city currently has by providing our department with needs.
