Petaluma council OKs goals for city

The Petaluma City Council on Monday formally adopted a lengthy list of goals for the next two years that aim to stabilize the city's financial footing, encourage transit-oriented growth and seek new revenue sources.

The 20 pages of ongoing and new objectives were hammered out during a daylong goal-setting session last month, so Monday's motion came with little discussion and unanimous approval from the seven council members.

In an effort to replace redevelopment funds lost to the state, the council vowed to consider placing a sales tax increase on the 2014 ballot to fund city services.

A similar plan was dropped by the council last year when only three council members supported it.
