In July 2009, the Board of Supervisors adopted a comprehensive Business Plan for the City. This plan contains a series of objectives grouped into sections representing different aspects, or perspectives of the quality of life in Carson City. Additionally, a set of objectives has been adopted that speak to how Carson City government will operate.

City Operations Scorecard - period ending May 31, 2010 (pdf)
This briefing includes data for the period ending May 31 2010.
This month, staff will present the strategy map and scorecard for the perspective titled "A Vibrant, Diverse and Sustainable Economy." Data reflecting the past and current condition of our economy are included, along with monthly and annual employment numbers. We will also present the estimated number of unemployed Carson City residents as determined by the Nevada State Department of Employment, Training and Rehabilitation (DETR). Data related to business license activities are included, however, it should be noted that additional data will be presented in the future which will reflect, along with the number of new businesses, the number of businesses that cease to exist. Staff is also developing methods of tracking business assistance statistics so that information related to the activities of the Office of Business Development and the new Business Resource Center can be presented on a monthly basis.
Along with the taxable sales graphs this month, staff has included a scorecard of taxable sales categories. A red indicator will appear when the current month collections fall below the same time period one year ago. It is important to note that the two largest taxable sales categories in Carson City are automotive and retail.
The City Finances Scorecard measures are also listed. These numbers represent FY 2009/2010, period ending May 31, 2010.
The current status of transportation projects are also included in this report.
