Mayor Allen Schneider pushed the City Council Monday evening to come up with a short list of goals for the city to work on achieving.
“If you really want to make progress, you can’t have 25 different projects you are working on at the same time,” he said. “I want to see everybody agree on what these priorities are and focus on them.”
The council picked three goals to prioritize:
• Capital projects including developing an inventory of the city’s infrastructure such as water and sewer lines and the ages of those lines.
• Parks and Recreation including plans for Hall Park and a community center.
• Communication with residents, possibly with a citywide questionnaire and a celebrating the pending completion of the Highway 22 paving project through the town.
For Robert Schneider Jr., who is not running for re-election in November, the community center planning was a high priority.
“I think its time for us to consider what the next step is,” the council member said.
