SANTA FE, N.M. - The City of Santa Fe is set to undergo a high-level review in an attempt to identify vision, goals, strengths, and weaknesses of city government.
Over the course of three days this week, former Las Cruces City Manager Robert Garza will head up the review process, interviewing all city councilors, department heads and employee union representatives.
“Like any well-managed organization, the City needs a vision and a set of agreed-upon priorities to guide our work," said Santa Fe Mayor Alan Webber. "With our new leadership team in place, now is the right time to take a look at these larger issues and create alignment among the Council members and department heads. There are critical issues of over-arching goals, strategic directions, and managerial priorities. Mr. Garza’s experience and objectivity are important assets in our ongoing work to produce better results and real change in City government.”
Garza currently works as a consultant to public organizations and has more than 29 years of experience serving as Las Cruces' City Manager, Assistant City Manager, and Public Works Director.
Santa Fe City Manager Erik Litzenberg says Garza saw the City of Las Cruces through some major changes and will bring a fresh perspective to Santa Fe.
After completing the interviews, Garza will head up a workshop with city leaders to discuss his findings and will compile a report to help map out a plan of action moving forward.
