City Council adopts strategic planning document of priorities and performance indicators

The City of Kansas City, Mo., City Council adopted a strategic planning document of Council priorities and performance indicators during Business Session on Thursday, Jan. 10. This document is the result of collaboration among the City Manager’s Office, Mayor’s Office and City Council, and it marks the first time Council priorities have been connected to specific and measurable performance indicators.

“This is a big step forward in the City’s ongoing efforts toward transparency and performance management,” said Mayor Pro Tem Cindy Circo. “It is a best practice to align strategic goals with performance measures, and we look forward to measuring the progress of our priorities this year.”

The City Council identified 23 priorities within six broader categories, plus one cross-cutting priority focused on customer service, citizen engagement and communication. Each priority is accompanied with one or more performance indicators that will be used to track its progress. The City’s monthly KCStat meetings will discuss performance management reports addressing each priority’s progress throughout 2013. A schedule of meetings is available at
