Council looks at upcoming goals

By CRAIG MURPHY Of the Keizertimes With most old goals accomplished, members of the Keizer City Council started looking at new goals Monday night. During a work session, councilors along with Mayor Lore Christopher and several city department heads analyzed progress made on goals set two years ago. The process is done every two years, with the goals hanging in the back of council chambers on large boards. Christopher put the boards on easels and went through both the short-term and long-term goals. Of the short-term goals, only sunsetting the Urban Renewal District (70 percent complete) was not completed all the way.
