Final Post-Budget

Part 1: Mayor’s Annual Work Plan Theme

 

Public health and economic sustainability are the top priorities for this fiscal year.  

We must strive to be flexible and responsive to the changing needs of the community.

Therefore: 

  • We will remain proactive in pursuing social, economic, and environmental sustainability
  • We will commit to being leaders in equity, diversity, inclusion, and safety  
  • We will continue to enhance housing and human service delivery

 

Finally, to the extent possible, we will continue to work on several FY21 initiatives and actions that were not fully accomplished due to the public health and economic disruptions caused by COVID-19.
