Employees play a vital role in advancing the City's goals and work hard to promote the organization's core values.  These values serve as benchmarks for employee empowerment, leadership, and service.  They also lead the way in facilitating the City's organizational mission and vision.  Accordingly, Human Resources strategically recruits candidates with behaviors that form a nexus to the City's core values.

  • Professionalism - Demonstrating personal conscientiousness through the qualities of courtesy, honesty and respect
  • Integrity - Modeling honesty and transparency through open government
  • Innovation - Promoting continuous improvement
