Deciding the future: Boyne City goal-setting meeting this week

2013 goal-setting 1

Are you interested in the future of Boyne City?

You are invited to join community leaders at the annual city goal-setting session at 6 p.m. on Thursday Jan. 14, in the parish hall at St. Matthew Catholic Church, 1303 M-75 South in Boyne City.

“This meeting is a very important part in helping the city commission and really our community determine its priorities for the coming years,” said Boyne City Manager Michael Cain. “We are hoping as many people as possible will attend. We are especially hoping that people who haven’t attended before will stop in and give it a try.”

He added, “We try to make it informative and fun. People who are planning on coming are encouraged to bring a friend, especially someone new.”

This public forum is your opportunity to share suggestions, ask questions, hear what your fellow citizens think, and receive updates on previously established goals.

Input received at this meeting will assist the city commission and other city boards and commissions in determining short-term and long-term goals for the community.

These goals will give the city commission and staff direction on the community’s priorities and where to focus the city’s resources to continue moving in a positive, progressive direction.

The last public goal-setting session was in January of 2014.

If you are not able to attend, you may submit suggestions to: City of Boyne City, 319 North Lake St., Boyne City, MI 49712 or by e-mailing
