The Friday Memo, written by Northfield City Administrator Joel Walinski and various department directors, managers, and supervisors, summarizes many of the staff activities for the week. The Friday memos are published and archived in PDF form at the bottom of Joel Walinski’s web page. Friday’s memo can be found on the memo page for the week.
Some items of interest in this week’s memo include:
- Information on a quote for an electronic document management system for the City. According to the City Clerk, “Professionals spend 5-15 % of their time reading information but up to 50% looking for it.” I’m assuming the professionals referred to are public employees, because in the private sector if it took 50% of people’s time finding already existing information, they’d be fired.
- Another item perhaps of interest: There are rumblings that another restaurant will be locating in the space held by Sweet Lou’s Waffle Bar.
- The memo also contains various street and budget updates which didn’t catch my interest when I read the memo, but are probably more important than the above.
No City Council meeting this Monday. You can view all City meetings on the City calendar.
