County Implements FY2017-2019 Department Strategic Business Plans
In 2014, the County embarked on a path to have three-year strategic business plans for all departments and two strategic business partners (MEDIC and the Public Library). The strategic business plans consist of specific measurable goals and objectives for the departments/partners to focus on from FY2017 to FY2019.
Within each strategic business plan, goals and objectives were intentionally developed utilizing performance data from previous fiscal years, economic/social/demographic trends, financial data, external and internal drivers, as well as SWOT analyses. Additionally, once the goals and objectives were determined, departmental strategic business planning teams – within each department - identified key strategies, actions, costs to execute the actions and performance measures to ensure the appropriate execution and tracking of strategic business plan activity. Following the approval of the FY2017 County budget, the strategic business plans were formally approved and implemented in July 2016.
The strategic business plans will not only allow for greater transparency and accountability into what the County will focus on over a three-year period, but will also ensure that the County is aligning its services and programs to the community needs and expectations.
The next phase of planning by the County’s Strategic Planning & Evaluation team is to finalize and approve the FY2017-2019 Corporate Strategic Business Plan that includes Corporate key initiatives and the Corporate Scorecard.

If you have any questions, please let me know. New Code Enforcement Director to Start Sept. 1
On Thursday, Patrick Granson will begin work as the new director of the Land Use and Environmental Services Agency’s (LUESA) Code Enforcement Division. He will report to Ebenezer Gujjarlapudi, director of LUESA. Jim Bartl, who will officially retire next February, will assist Patrick as he transitions into his new role.
Patrick was most recently the director of Code Enforcement’s plan review and permitting where he managed a staff of 70 that conducted plan reviews and issued over 90,000 permits in FY2015.
Patrick has been instrumental in assisting with the customer service enhancements that have been underway for the last two years. I believe Patrick is the right candidate to lead and continue the progress we have made in providing code enforcement services in Mecklenburg County.
