The City’s performance measurement model, called the Mercer Island Report Card (formerly Mercer Island Dashboard), was developed in 2007 with the following objectives in mind:
- To identify “top tier” indicators which capture the “state of the City” in terms of what matters most to the management team and the City Council.
- To collect meaningful information that impacts financial and human resource allocation decisions and ultimately organizational direction during the biennial budget/CIP process.
- To select a manageable group of measures that has minimal impact on productive staff time in terms of data gathering.
The model is described in the “Introduction” section of the annual Mercer Island Dashboard report.
Please note: Due to a very heavy workload in 2016 and 2017, staff was not able to prepare the 2015 and 2016 Mercer Island Report Cards.
