Raleigh council: Revise communication process

Posted February 6, 2014

— Communication was the overriding theme Thursday, the first of a two-day Raleigh City Council retreat.

The retreat was originally scheduled to occur in Wilmington, but Councilors moved it to the Raleigh Convention Center after state officials advised against driving to the Port City.

Communication came up repeatedly as a major issue among Councilors and the city manager and among themselves.

A large part of the discussion centered on the best way Council members could get information from staff. Councilors questioned whether they should bring an issue to the Council and then direct staff to follow up, or go directly to staff for research before bringing the issue forward.
