  • Moore said the City Council needs to revise the city charter and city code. She said the charter and code are antiquated and changes must be made to create the necessary financial and management controls.
  • She said the city should create a Strategic Planning committee to include local businesses, civic associations and residents to provide input on the budget, infrastructure, economic development, and health and safety.  
  • Moore said the city should establish an audit committee and revenue-generating initiatives to reduce the tax burden on residents.
