Mission Statement


CITY OF HARPER WOODS

MANAGEMENT’S MISSION STATEMENT:

 

We firmly believe in Philosopher John Locke’s Social Contract Theory that -

"Government exists for the benefit of the governed not those governing"

 

THAT IS. . . 

"The City of Harper Woods exists not to serve

those who are employed here, but for the

residents who have placed us here to serve."

WE BELIEVE . . .

* The City’s business is service to our community.

* That our service to the community should be helpful, caring and responsive.

* That the success of the City organization is dependent on teamwork, mutual
    respect and commitment to the following values:

~Participation by all segments of the community.

~Effective Communication within and among our constituents.

~Integrity in everything we do.

~Innovation in meeting the present and future needs of the City.

~Accountability to our elected officials and the Trust our citizens have placed       in them

~Responsibility for the services entrusted to us

~Pride in what we do, always striving to serve in the best interest of the
  community as a whole

 

 

We Believe in our Dedication to Public Service
