On a daily basis it takes a significant amount of work to provide municipal services to the citizens and businesses within the City of Port Angeles. The delivery and maintenance of utilities, provision of public safety services, sponsorship of recreational activities and the legal, financial, and planning support for each of these are all labor intensive activities requiring long-term planning and oversight. These services are what most citizens would probably refer to as “routine” and “expected.” What perhaps is less obvious to the basic delivery of municipal services are the one-time projects that represent an incredible amount of work being accomplished “behind the scenes.”
The intent of this Work Plan is to be a communications tool between City Staff and the Council, by providing a brief synopsis of some of the many projects being worked on throughout various City Departments. Through this Work Plan, the Council can gain an understanding of the projects, the objectives of the projects, the rationale behind them, and where they fit into the overall Council Goals. The Work Plan can also be utilized by the Council when communicating with the community about the various ongoing projects throughout the City.
