2019 Strategic Goals

On June 5, 2019, the Grand Traverse County Board of Commissioners asked County Administration to develop a work plan to achieve goals in 2019 that the Board of Commissioners identified as being important.  The County Commissioners asked Administration to work on achieving the following:

  1. Implement a vehicle replacement policy.
  2. Streamline permitting for development, construction, and all other permits.
  3. Complete an audit of all County facilities and buildings.
  4. Create a Correctional Infrastructure Committee that should study how to best improve county corrections.
  5. Fully fund the pension ahead of schedule.
  6. Annually review revenue from all special millages and the 911 surcharge and determine what funding levels from these millages/surcharge are appropriate.
  7. Develop an easily accessible dashboard that tracks the County's critical metrics including information on the County's finances.
  8. Study work force housing in the County and develop a strategy to address such needs.
  9. Conduct County wide surveys to establish priorities.
  10. Embrace wellness opportunities that will make not only County employees healthier but the region as well.
