They will present: Innovate Lane County “creative, risky, innovative, initiative”
More details to follow.
In fall 2011, Lane County Administrator Liane Richardson launched Innovate Lane County. Through this new process, Lane County employees generated more than 1,000 ideas for countywide changes to increase efficiencies in service delivery while maintaining great customer service.
“The level of passion, creativity, and consideration employees and leaders gave to this process cements my belief that the future of Lane County isn’t what happens ‘to us’ via budgetary challenges, mandates or other hurdles,” said Richardson. “The future of Lane County is what we make it with our effort, dedication, and commitment to the residents we serve.”
Lane County is examining ways to streamline contracting processes, create ways to access commercial property information online, and provide technology services outside of the needs of our day-to-day operations. The biggest ideas focused on the pattern of our footprint, or how we’re structured to provide services. Merging service areas presents exciting possibilities in generating efficiencies while continuing to provide essential services.
Task force teams are exploring these organizational changes in greater depth to examine the opportunities and challenges that might arise.
