Fall 2019 County Progress Report Available

In an ongoing effort to increase transparency and accountability regarding the work and resources dedicated to the Board of Supervisor's annual objectives, the County Executive Office (CEO) has implemented performance management software which tracks progress on objectives set by the Board. At the July 9th Board of Supervisors meeting, Assistant County Executive Officer Mali Dyck presented the County's first mid-year report. Since the July report, County departments have continued to track progress on Board objectives. The second report covers progress made from July through September and can be viewed on the Boards website.

Each quarterly update will allow the Board and the public to have greater insight into how County departments are accomplishing the Board's objectives. The reports include progress updates and highlights several of the many initiatives with additional detailed information.

In January, the Board sets annual priorities for the coming year during their Board Workshop. Last year the Board objectives included: maintaining financial stability and core services, wildfire preparedness, addressing homeless and housing, implementing a cannabis ordinance, economic development and civic engagement as their top priorities for 2019/2020 fiscal year.

Highlighted initiatives for the third quarter include:
