Major Issues facing the department The challenge of providing quality service to a growing number of citizens with declining resources…DOING MORE WITH LESS. Looking for efficiencies through technology, new processes, partnerships Examples: Library lending machines, Lorick study, GBA scheduling and workflow system, working cooperatively with other agencies, volunteers, etc. Reducing service levels but with least impact to citizens. There will be further reductions in the future.
