The City's Five Strategic Priorities

In carrying out the daily operations of the City of Jerome, employees keep in mind five strategic priorities. The priorities are focused on continual improvement of the community, infrastructure, safety, planning, and well-being of Jerome. When City department heads post their bi-weekly progress reports, they reference these five areas in order to detail the accomplishments and progress in the their department during the previous two weeks.

The City of Jerome's Five Strategic Priorities:
1. Inspire an inviting and friendly atmosphere
2. Promote balanced, diversified, and sustained economic growth
