Recap & Documents
The City Council "retreat" is an all day planning / training session which is used to allow new council members the opportunity to get caught up to speed on city matters and it is also used to plan for items of importance which may be brought forward in the coming year. The day started before 8 and ended after 5 and there were lots of good discussions. The 2011 year in review (link below) is a nice recap down to the city departmental level and the financial forecasts of the city and the staffing of the police department each took a good part of of the day, then we discussed numerous other items on the agenda.
The meeting was open to the public and the press covered it as well as shown here, here & here.
