Honoring Our Heritage: We never forget our history and how this agency evolved into a modern service provider that never lost its sense of community and hometown atmosphere, yet constantly plans for the future. We are mindful of those who served before us, and we include them in this family.

Promoting Teamwork: Each member's contribution is worthwhile, important, and necessary to the continued success of our organization as it relates to the profession, to the community, and to our city government. Our collective strength comes from the diversity contributed by each team member and the recognition that we are all equally integral to the success of our organization.
