Council goals and legislative priorities
Each year the Rosemount City Council meets in sessions dedicated to discussion of long-term issues of significance to the community and to set a vision. The discussion results in the adoption of explicit goals that guide the work of City staff and the Council itself to prioritize work flow, budgeting decisions, and objectives.  The City Council reaffirmed its 2013-14 goals in January 2014. 

The City Council also set an agenda of legislative priorities that it supports during the 2014 session of the Minnesota Legislature. [Read the legislative priorities.]
