County Seeks Input For Strategic Planning
Reduced timber revenue has been impacting Oregon's public sector for years, and the trend is not expected to change.
Lane County is developing its 2015-2017 strategic plan, focusing on how to do more with less. After a workshop in June, Commissioners identified three priorities: health and safety, infrastructure, and vibrant communities. They hope to continue to tailor the plan to residents' concerns.
County spokeswoman Anne Marie Levis says the passing of the sheriff's levy was a helpful indicator:
Levis: "People are concerned about public safety and we're looking to prioritize some of their spending there. The strategic plan is really looking at all of that feedback and trying to say 'Where should the county spend its time and money?'"
A public input session takes place tomorrow (Wednesday) at 5:30 p.m. at Harris Hall in Eugene. Input is also welcomed online at LaneCounty.org.
