Mayor Milissa Holland wants more regular discussions on the issues the council considers most important.
Palm Coast City Council members during an Aug. 28 council workshop pressed City Manager Jim Landon to provide more regular feedback on the implementation of the city’s strategic action priorities, a series of measures the council has decided to focus on.
Landon sends the council updates quarterly, but Mayor Milissa Holland didn’t find those updates sufficient.
“I just really do feel strongly that we do need to see not just a quarterly sending of it, Jim, but a dialogue,” she said.
Councilman Nick Klufas agreed.
Holland had also been displeased with the vagueness of the dates listed for those projects in a city staff presentation, which listed fiscal years rather than exact dates.
“We need a timeline ... where I’m bringing it back to council by this date,” she said. “This is a very specific goal that I need to know when you’re bringing it back to the council for adoption. … I just need more than ‘FY2019’ and ‘FY20.’”
“OK, that’s good feedback; that’s what we need,” Landon said. He also clarified that the dates listed in the report Holland was frustrated with were end dates, and city staff has more detailed timelines for implementation.
