In November 2022, the City contracted with 110%, Inc. (Consultant), to complete an Internal Operational Analysis and develop a Financial Sustainability Strategy for the city’s recreational programming and services.
Over several months, the Consultant and staff gathered data, reviewed recreation activities, and assessed operational functions within the Parks and Recreation Department.
The City Council, Parks and Recreation and Senior Advisory Boards participated in interviews, workshops, and received regular project updates during their monthly meetings. These resident groups have been an important component of the project as their perspectives continue to ensure the considerations are in alignment with the City’s overall financial stability, as well as, the understanding of our commitment towards our resident’s overall quality of life.
The presentation to City Council was on May 22. This presentation outlined the method being applied to develop a 3-to-5-year financial strategy and considerations for operational and programming approaches.
