The draft of the first five-year strategic plan for the city of Manhattan will be made public later this week. The city commission got a look at materials tied to it at Tuesday’s work session, weighing in.

Part of the discussion included remnants from the recent budget sessions, with Mayor Wynn Butler noting that he was looking for more substance when it comes to fiscal responsibility, including a suggestion that a debt limit be considered.

Commissioner Mark Hatesohl was one expressing concern that the “at-a-glance” presentation was full of priorities sought by city staff.
