16 Move the City forward toward greater preparedness and resiliency. Ongoing In Process 2021-22: Due to budget cuts, the City had to pause on disaster preparedness. We need to reaffirm this priority by hiring a new coordinator and move forward with plans to develop and strengthen plans and procedures within the City to better prepare and respond to disasters. 2022-23: Staff training requirements have been surveyed, and many staff have taken needed training.
