Report Highlights

Citywide Workplan

The Administration has historically prepared a two-year Citywide work plan and presented it to the City Council at the Council retreat that occurs in the beginning of the year. The work plan contains the significant projects that are not capital projects and are aligned with the six goal areas from the Strategic Plan. Importantly, the projects listed on the work plan are only a fraction of the work being performed in the City’s departments.

This year’s work plan encompasses 2023-2024. The plan contains both new actions and refreshed descriptions of actions carried over from 2022. The latest report provides updates on the progress of the plan as of the end of the third quarter of 2023.

Capital Project List

In addition to the Citywide work plan, the Administration has also historically prepared a report on the capital projects that staff will work on each year. The report provides a summary of the status for each capital project as well as a general description and a graphical timeline. This report reflects project updates from the end of the third quarter of 2023. The Administration will continue to update this report at the end of each quarter. 

Quarterly Financial Update

This summary report provides an update on the City’s General Fund revenues and expenditures through August of 2023.  The Administration will begin the 2023-2024 Mid-Biennium Budget Adjustment presentation at the October 30, 2023 City Council Committee of the Whole meeting.

The Administration has updated the Citywide Performance Dashboard as of April 2023 and provided this report on performance measurement to help explain the completeness of data, overall performance, and the performance by Strategic Plan goal area.
