The City of Fort Wayne will host the Indiana Association of Cities and Towns (IACT) High Performance Government Task Force on Thursday, July 27. Mayor Graham Richard is the chairman of the task force. Task force members are exploring ways to improve government services and reduce expenses.

From 10 a.m.-2 p.m., the task force will attend the City'€™s High Performance Government Executive Overview session. The session includes presentations on how the City uses business practices and technology to enhance services. High performance government best practices include Lean Six Sigma, which has saved the City over $10 million since 2000. The overview will be held on the 3rd floor of the City-County Building.

“We are building high trust, high performance partnerships with leaders from communities across Indiana to make government more effective and efficient for taxpayers,” said Mayor Richard. “We look forward to sharing our successes and learning how other municipalities are developing innovative techniques to better serve residents.”
