QUESNEL, B.C. – Quesnel City Council has identified a number of its strategic priorities for 2008, but before they give the targets final approval, Council wants to hear from the public.
Council met for two days on January 10 and 11 for strategic planning sessions. During those meetings, Council laid out the following strategic priorities:
- West Quesnel Land Stability
- Financial Sustainability of the Corporation
- Economic Development and Diversification
- Community Safety
- Environmental Policy
Council still has a number of other topics to consider adding to the list and will do so at its March 3 delegation session. However, Council wants to receive input from the public on these strategies.
“We take what our residents have to say about City services and programs very seriously,” said Mayor Nate Bello. “We want to engage the public and encourage them to help us as we prepare to guide the community through the next year. I hope we get some good feedback on what we’re proposing as we’re always willing to listen to new ideas.”
The public can request a draft copy of the strategic priorities for 2008 from City Hall at 992-2111 or it can be downloaded from the City’s website at www.city.quesnel.bc.ca on the Council News page.
Feedback should be submitted in written form, either in hard copy at City Hall or by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
