The city has outlined four main goals: maintain and improve financial position; enhance communication with employees; contribute to healthy community environment; and improve the Clinton’s organization and services. Kinser outlined objectives beneath each goal and councilmembers requested to add establishing a finance committee and having a $1 million cash reserve to the list.
Although city leaders will wait to know the official state of the coffers, Kinser said they will have statements to inform them on budget creation.
“You’re going to receive an abundance of information that I don’t think excludes you from setting a budget,” Kinser said.
The city also discussed having a Saturday work session to continue to hammer out details. No official session was set up during Committee of the Whole.
