RENO, Nev. (MyNews4.com & KRNV) -- City leaders and council members spent Tuesday inside the Joe Crowley Student Union Building reviewing last year's goals and setting new ones for the the 2014-2015 fiscal year.

The goals for this year are similar to last year's, and focus on making neighborhoods safer, promoting a sustainable and vibrant economy, providing efficient and responsive city services, and enhancing communications and community engagement.

Councilman Oscar Delgado, who represents Ward 3, says the biggest challenge facing the city going into the new year is the budget. However, it's not the same as challenges they have faced in years past.

"We are trying to be creative, we want to be as flexible as we can with the staffing levels that we have, along with working closely with UNR, working closely with Sparks and Washoe County where we can get a long term goal," said Councilman Delgado. "At the end of the day, we aren't just the City of Reno, we're the Truckee Meadows."

Reno Mayor Bob Cashell also agreed the budget was the biggest challenge facing the city, and says a goal is to also educate the community on bonds.

Councilman Delgado says moving forward, the city needs to make some decisions focusing on long-term and short-term goals, and how to do both.

Let me know when Reno's "leaders" start talking about eliminating wasteful and ineffective programs and reducing or cutting burdensome regulations on business. I won't be holding my breath.

the city is spread out from Bordertown to Verdi (& wants to anexx Pyramid Hwy); yet big, empty lots/stores abound. Educate the public about bonds? -the finance guy's named "chisel"

the city is run by bicycle advocates. I ride one, and am concerned with safety, but minimizing lanes on hilly commuter streets (like Sutro and Keystone) is just nonsense.reduce speeding and use alternate routes in Stead
