Council accepts city manager’s goals, objectives
Tecumseh City Council accepted a proposed set of goals and objectives for City Manager Kevin Welch at its Monday, Feb. 3 meeting.
The council members conducted a performance evaluation for Welch during a closed session at the January 20 council meeting.
“I attempted to capture your thoughts during my review,” Welch told the council members. “These are summaries of my goals and objectives.”
Welch proposed to:
• Continue to communicate and build relationships with others in the community, including business owners, school systems and especially those who are new to the area or are facing changes in their own organizations.
• Encourage fresh ideas and people to work within the city organization, especially on the city’s boards and commissions.
• Stay on top of some of the development/redevelopment projects in the city, to make sure that the citizens now and in the future will be proud of the results, and that they comply with city ordinances.
• Continue to place economic development high on the priority list, especially the Business and Technology Campus.
• Present a Capital Improvement Plan that addresses the city’s future infrastructure and equipment needs.
• Review and project the city’s overall staffing needs for the future to address areas that may be understaffed and not prepared for the future.
Welch also proposed that all previous goals and objectives outlined by the city manager should also be considered ongoing and important.
