Kirksville commission sets goals for 2018
KIRKSVILLE, Mo. —
Kirksville Lakes, Parks and Recreation Commission (LPRC) held its first meeting of the new year on Tuesday.
One topic on its agenda, creating a new mission statement for 2018.
"It is 2018. We're moving on with some projects. We have dedicated funding now, so we want to make sure we're providing the best possible services to Kirksville that we can," said newly hired Parks and Recreation Director Rodney Sadler.
Sadler said he wants the new mission statement to "work for the community," establishing its vision, values and goals.
Sadler also said funding is a large reason the mission wasn't set and the half-cent parks and rec sales tax will help the commission hone in on its goals.
The committee aims to have the statement completed by its next meeting in February.
LPRC also plans to create a scoring guide for the Capital Improvement Project.
The scoring guide will help evaluate the needs in the area with a tiered system.
"Our capital improvement scoring guide is something we thought would be appropriate, and I’m going to take [the LPRC’s] thoughts and input and work with the staff to see if we could come together with a workable document,” Sadler said.
The scoring guide will help assess what improvements are needed most in the city.
