Government Operations

We focus on the organization of the City’s government and the efficiency of City services.

We examine proposed ordinances and special laws that affect:

  • City departments
  • agencies, and
  • commissions. 

Ordinances often impact the quality of life for City residents. It's important we examine these ordinances for validity. We also review the efficiency and effectiveness of City programs.
