Prioritizing continues to be an elusive concept for city officials

“OK, we gotta figure out where on the priority list that goes,” said Ojai Mayor Johnny Johnston after the Ojai City Council voted unanimously Jan. 23 in favor of directing staff to draft an ordinance that would allow for tiny homes as legal dwellings within the city.
But as of Jan. 30, there is no such publicly available priority list, said Ojai City Manager Steve McClary.
“I have, of course, a draft working list but would not call that the Council’s list,” he said. “We are hoping to call a special meeting very soon to discuss prioritization, at which point we could say 'That’s the Council’s (priority) list.’”
The Council’s last agendized discussion of priorities occurred April 1, 2017, during a special Saturday workshop meeting.
