Basic Overall Goals and Objectives:
The term service denotes a response to needs, desires, and interests of the community. Within this concept of service, it is acknowledged that one of the Department’s primary thrusts is that of facilitator or enabler. In essence, the Department is here to serve and help people help themselves.
To implement this philosophy, a series of goals and objectives has been identified. The basic overall goals of the Department include:
1) providing opportunities which enable all residents to enjoy recreation;
2) assisting community organizations and groups with human and material resources;
3) coordinating the use of existing physical, financial and human resources.
