The City Manager sends weekly communications to the City Council in the form "Leader Critical Information Requirements", or LCIR. The City Manager is briefed on a weekly basis from City Department Heads, and passes this information onto your Aldermen and the Mayor.

Frequently, these communications cover topics that are about to receive media coverage, or may be addressed by constituents.  This information is provided to Council members and the Mayor so they can be completely informed of all city business.
