Legislative Affairs & Strategy Development

Description/Goal

As part of the overall 2018 legislative strategy formally adopted by the City Council in 4Q-17, staff will take formal positions and engage on key issues during the 2018 legislative session; a legislative strategy outlining City of Davenport legislative priorities, including policy briefs on each, was distributed to the local delegation; staff will monitor and track legislation related to these issues and updated the City Council routinely and accordingly.
