City to share assessed mission and vision statements via painted murals
City Manager Rochelle Small-Toney and the city of Rocky Mount, North Carolina’s Executive Leadership team recently completed its annual review of the organization’s mission and vision statements. Mission statements guide an organization’s day-to-day purpose, while vision statements give long-term directive.
The annual assessment allows the City Manager and Executive Staff to ensure the statements remain relevant to the organization. After the most recent assessment, the city of Rocky Mount’s mission statement and vision statements read:
- Mission statement: “To excel in municipal service, performance and innovation.”
- Vision statement: “To advance community well-being, safety, and quality of life by delivering excellent municipal services.”
To share these commitments with the public, the city will install painted murals inside the Frederick E. Turnage Municipal Building and the Imperial Centre for the Arts and Sciences. The murals will be painted by city employees and local high school students. Said Small-Toney:
“I’m looking forward to the creativity that will be displayed through the paintings. I am confident this will serve as a reminder to our organization about the value we should place on our service each day for the citizens of Rocky Mount.”
