Operational Performance refers to the optimization of the business activities engaged by City departments on a daily basis. The City employs a data-driven approach to identifying current operational trends and challenges. This cyclical process allows the City to proactively respond, resulting in increasing efficiency and productivity, and the maintenance of desirable conditions.
Our residents consistently rank education as a top community priority, and the City of Henderson has responded by actively supporting student achievement at our local schools. Since 2015, the City has provided over $3.4 million to public schools in our community for items that improve and preserve educational facilities, increase technology resources and pre-kindergarten skills assessments as well as provide for enhanced curriculum, learning specialist positions, and special education assistants. The City also actively partners with community representatives and nonprofit organizations to further educational outcomes and is committed to sustaining involvement in our children’s education.
The City of Henderson’s vision is “To Be America’s Premier Community.” To realize this vision, the City must be accountable, transparent, efficient, and responsive to its residents while also fully engaging its employees to provide premier services. Although the City is proud of its reputation for outstanding customer service, along with its 93 percent overall citizen satisfaction rate and its 89 percent employee engagement rate, it is dedicated to advancing the processes and technology required to further exceed resident expectations.
The City of Henderson is committed to keeping every member of the community safe, which is why we are repeatedly listed among the top 10 Safest Cities in the nation by nationally recognized publications, including Money Magazine. Achieving community safety takes a village. From police,
fire, emergency, and environmental services staff to the community and traffic engineers – each plays a role in community safety. Moreover, to attain our goal of being a premier community, we must leverage technology, community, and capital resources to design a resilient strategy capable of
preventing, preparing for, mitigating, responding to, and recovering from emergencies and disasters – both natural and human-made.
