Outcome Description Unanimous vote to approve the dashboard system proposed by the Executive Director to report on Strategic Plan progress. The Commission reaffirmed their respect for staff independence and professionalism. They rejected an option to require an excessive level of time consuming monitoring and reporting that would have diverted staff from its core work.
Why You Should Care This decision defines the level of oversight and management that the Commission will conduct over the professional staff.
