Local government officials are custodians of the public trust in ways that should maximize the benefit of taxpayer dollars to its residents and visitors, as well as the corporate and small business partners that make up the commercial entities that reside in our City. Pearland’s government entity will measure its success as an ombudsman for citizen-focused decision-making by making sure that our practices exhibit quality-control, community outreach, public involvement processes, leadership development opportunities for citizens, and accessible public facilities and services.
These practices and outcomes make up some of the aspects of Pearland’s local government that demonstrate how citizens in this expansive cosmopolitan suburb, who have a multitude of perspectives and backgrounds, are the focus of our work. Improving the effectiveness of two-way communication between the citizen and the government entity, and setting high standards for responding to the needs of residents are just a few ways the City fulfills its commitment to citizens. At its best, our City government works with partners in the public and private sectors and looks ahead to citizens of tomorrow while exceeding the expectations of today.
