Our Mission

The city government, aside from the power and authority normally associated with a municipality; is the unit of government nearest to the people. That means we are closely connected to the lives of those who live, work, and visit our community; therefore we remain focused on several key objectives:

  • To provide services in the most cost-effective and efficient way
  • To invest in and improve the quality of life in our neighborhoods
  • To nurture and promote a vibrant business and commercial sector
  • To protect and promote our natural, historic, and cultural assets
  • To provide good stewardship of all public resources
  • To serve our constituents in a respectful and dignified manner
