Council welcomed José Madrigal to the City organization in mid-September. He presented us with a plan for his first 100 days which includes an extensive review of the City organization and structure in order to develop and implement changes that focus on high performance and customer service, use data driven-decision making and incorporate continuous improvement as core values.
Finding a highly qualified, experienced and educated City Manager such as José gives the City of Durango and our community the opportunity to expand & enhance the characteristics of our town that create the exceptional quality of life that we all share, and to foster a vital, vibrant economy.
In preparation for the 2021 budget, I let José & the other City Councilors know that I would be advocating for fiscally conservative policies and specifically the principles below:
We have come a long way, but still have much improvement to achieve in the coming months! If you have any questions or comments about the draft budget or proposed capital projects, please contact me.
The addition of these two key staff members will enhance and encourage a high performing, continuously improving organization that focuses on benefiting the community.
As always, if you wish to share my newsletters with others, please do. And if they would like to be added to my list, they can request that by emailing me. If you would prefer not to be included on my newsletter list, please let me know, and I will remove your email.
