Mission and Vision


MISSION STATEMENT

The City of Andrews is committed to an excellent quality of life for all citizens by conducting public business and encouraging initiatives which reflect the core values of the community, striving to develop diversity in leadership, and achieving a sense of pride through the proactive, forward-thinking and strategic development of policies and projects

It is the expectation of the City of Andrews to always strive for the highest level of customer service, recognizing that “service” is not a department, but an attitude. 

The City also recognizes that our employees are the lifeblood of our organization. The longstanding policy of the City of Andrews is to have a relatively small, well-trained, stable staff using efficient, well-maintained equipment to provide quality, business-like service. 

Further, the City of Andrews is committed to a long-term financial strategy, which maintains the City’s goal of efficient government (i.e. low taxes, no debt, etc.) and financial strength while balancing the desire to meet community needs.
