Butler County Commissioners approved the strategic goals for 2009-2010 during their meeting Tuesday.

The plan was broken down into six areas: diversification; enhancement of public safety; providing for regular maintenance and replacement of capital assets; exploration of efficiency of offices; public relations with communities; and providing skilled and powered work force.

“It is a little different format than what we’ve had before,” said Will Johnson, county administrator. “I think it’s a good document for us to work toward.”
It includes short-term, mid-term and long-term goals.

“Now we have to figure out how we can implement them,” Johnson said.
Commissioner Randy Waldorf said he was happy with the way it turned out.

Johnson said staff will look at building specific policies and definitive goals around this plan.

The committee that put together the plan told the commission they felt the goals were attainable and reasonable.

“It’s doable stuff,” Commissioner Dan Woydziak agreed.

Some of the items include seeking approval for sales tax to fund the communication plan and evaluate the cost/recovery of current fees for services.

“Really we’ve focused around specific tasks in the past, I think this is more broad-based approach,” Johnson said, adding it was more realistic than some they have gotten in the past.

The commission approved the goals 5-0.
