City Council to Develop Priorities; Community Invited to Participate
Redwood City, CA - January 30, 2006 - In conjunction with the City’s two-year budget cycle, the City Council annually reviews and revises its set of priorities. These priorities help guide the development of the budget, which in turn leads to the programs, projects, policies, and processes for the City. In short, the priorities provide guidance for the City’s overall direction, and therefore it’s crucial that the community participate in the development of these priorities. Over 90 people attended two recent community input workshops on City Council Priorities, and provided a great deal of fresh, creative, and extremely valuable ideas for the City Council’s consideration.
Now, the City Council will be incorporating all of that input into their discussion of priorities, engaging in further public input and dialogue, and making final decisions on its priorities. The community is invited and encouraged to participate in this special priority-setting Council meeting on Monday, February 6, 2006 in the Community Room of the Downtown Library, 1044 Middlefield Road. Refreshments will be available at 6:00 pm and the meeting will start at 6:30 pm.
This will be a Council meeting, but will follow a more informal discussion process designed to encourage open and frank conversation, guided toward the Council making final selections of priorities. The public is invited to enjoy refreshments and a candid discussion of Council priorities in a comfortable and receptive environment.
The current set of City Council Priorities can be seen on the City’s website at www.redwoodcity.org, by clicking on “City Council” and selecting “Council Priorities.”
