Action Plan items lay the groundwork for programs and initiatives in the coming year, with critical measures showing progress. Among the many action items for FY20 are outreach initiatives for recycling, the 2019 municipal elections and the 2020 Census, promotion of Opportunity Zone benefits, construction of a new Police Station, and inspection of the City's stormwater infrastructure.
