Much different than its predecessor, the 2015-2017 strategic plan was tabled at the Dec. 15 Lloydminster city council meeting and it sets in place four key priorities moving into the next three years. The plan says that the priorities over the next three years will be strong relationships, a vibrant city, sustainable infrastructure and a healthy financial position for the city.
Sharon Herbus, the director of strategy with the City of Lloydminster, said that from an administration point of view, council wanted a simple document. “They want a simple document that would communicate their vision for where they were going for the next three years,” she said.
Herbus said that this plan will be easy to understand for everyone.
“It’s something that residents can pick up, and even the staff at the city can execute on daily basis,” she said.
During the council meeting, Coun. Chris McQuid, who introduced the plan, said that one of the key focuses in the next three years will be clear communications with the partners of the city.
Herbus said that the strategic plan that council has developed are the key priorities that council will be directed on.
“We are planning a roll out of the administration documents on how we are going to support and execute council’s vision in the new year,” she said, adding that roll out will help support council’s vision for the future of Lloydminster.
