Maintain Revenue Effort

What our city is able to collect in terms of taxes and fees is important to fund our infrastructure and future growth.  An office that provides excellent customer service, documentation, record keeping and timely communication would be a key ingredient.


Increase Hopewell Median Household Income

The more income our residents are able to earn or produce the better our community becomes.  A community of contributors is very important.  Connecting our residents to available opportunities through economic development and workforce training is a key priority.
