CITY COUNCIL ADOPTS A WIDE RANGE OF STEPS TO IMPROVE CITY SERVICES, WORKPLACE CULTURE AND RECRUITMENT AND RETENTION
The Malibu City Council voted unanimously to adopt the a sweeping plan with concrete steps meant to improve City operations, workplace morale and culture, and staff recruitment and retention during a special meeting on September 27. The City Council and City Manager have been focusing efforts on addressing many longstanding challenges that the City faces. Those include being able to provide more efficient, effective, consistent services to the community, high staff workloads and high expectations and demands for services and projects from the City Council and the community.
The City Council took several actions to advance the new Strategic Work Plan:
- Adopting the plan’s proposed list of 20 priority projects, which replaces the current Work Plan;
- Directing the City Manager to give progress updates on the project every two months during City Council meetings;
- Scheduling the next Strategic Workshop for March 2024 to revisit and, if needed, refresh the Priority List;
- Giving direction to staff to study and come back to Council to consider action on the recommended list of benefits to improve recruitment and retention.
