Special Edition:
Mayor and City Council Adopt Bold Strategic Vision for El Paso

As part of an extensive strategic planning process, the Mayor and City Council aimed to develop quality strategic public policy goals that would assist in guiding the City organization in a more positive and productive direction. Earlier this year, the Mayor and Council ratified action plans created by City Manager Joyce Wilson and City department heads that outline how the organization will implement the City Council's identified policy goals.

This special issue of the newsletter is dedicated to providing you, the citizen, with a better understanding and an in-depth look at these new policy goals and the steps the City will take to get us there.
