Rancho Palos Verdes City Council
   

TO: HONORABLE MAYOR AND CITY COUNCIL

FROM: CITY MANAGER

DATE: APRIL 15, 2003

SUBJECT: COUNCIL AND STAFF TACTICAL PLANNING WORKSHOP

RECOMMENDATION

Set a date and time for a City Council and Staff Tactical Planning Workshop.

BACKGROUND

At their March 18, 2003 meeting, the City Council set Saturday May 3, 2003 as the date for the Tactical Planning workshop. It now appears that due to unanticipated events neither Mayor Stern nor Mayor Pro Tem Ferraro will be available that day.

DISCUSSION

The proposed Workshop should involve all five Councilmembers, the City Manager, City Attorney, Assistant City Manager, Director of Administrative Services, Director of Finance and Information Technology, Director of Planning, Building and Code Enforcement, Director of Public Works and the Director of Recreation and Parks.

The Council has already made commitments on the following Saturdays:

May 10 Community Leadersí Breakfast/Budget Policy Workshop
May 31 Contract Cities Annual Conference
June 14 Docentís Luncheon (tentative)

The following Saturdays include three day weekends and are not good candidates for the Workshop:

May 24 Memorial Day Weekend
July 5 Independence Day Weekend

Various Councilmembers have indicated to me that April 12 and 19 are not good for them. I am not available on June 7 (my sonís wedding). Three staff members are not available on June 21. Two staff members are not available on May 17 and July 12

We have identified three dates that all nine staff members are available. The dates are:

April 26
June 28

If none of these dates are compatible with City Councilmember commitments, the Council may wish to simply set a date and time and those staff members who are available will attend. All staff members are interested in attending this session and will make every effort to attend whenever the Workshop is scheduled.

Respectfully submitted,
Les Evans
City Manager
