Town Manager's Philosophy for Providing Public Services in the Town of Truckee.
The philosophy that governs service delivery in Truckee is that the employees of the Town join with the members of the community in accepting responsibility for Truckee's quality of life. This philosophical approach, instilled throughout the organization, implies:

  • Strong relationships are forged between Town employees and members of the Truckee community to identify, define and resolve individual as well as community problems and concerns;
  • Employees are visibly involved and participate with the community;
  • Each employee accepts individual responsibility for resolution of issues and problems and utilizes every available resources in that resolution;
  • Employees demonstrate a "can do attitude" by timely, positive reaction to ideas, concerns and requests. the Town organization is characterized by partnerships, openness and receptivity that is unconstrained by structure and specific function.

Town Manager's Blog
As I enter my 30th year of public service I have made a personal commitment to embrace available technology to expand my efforts to regularly communicate with Truckee residents, business owners and property owners. This blog launches this effort. For the uninitiated Wikipedia provides a description of a blog- Blogs are usually maintained by an individual with regular entries of commentary, descriptions of events, or other material such as graphics or video. Entries are commonly displayed in reverse-chronological order. That describes my plan. Although I don’t feel that old, when I began my career personal computers did not exist and fax machines were considered cutting edge! Times have changed and I’m diving in. I plan to maintain my focus on issues of interest to the community that relate to the Town of Truckee. I welcome your input and feedback.
