    The Leadership Team has the responsibility for developing and executing City Council's priorities in an annual cycle that includes multiple performance years. The planning effort includes: ongoing environmental assessment to identify emerging issues, providing focus and direction for the organization, resource and tactical planning, identifying core strategies and policies critical to organizational success, and determining evaluation methods and linking them to the budget and performance measures systems.
