The City of Baytown strives to provide outstanding service and transparency to our community. In an effort to reach that goal, we've provided public access below to information about the City and its operations.
The City of Baytown has received the 2019 Certificate of Distinction in Performance Management from the International City/County Management Association.
Certificates are based on established criteria and are awarded at three levels: Achievement, Distinction, and the highest level of recognition, Excellence. Recipients at all levels collect and verify data to ensure reliability, train staff in performance measurement, and report data to the public through budgets, newsletters, and/or information provided to elected officials.
Certificates of Distinction are awarded to those who also provide comparative and benchmarking information to the public, use performance data in strategic planning and operational decision-making, and share their knowledge with other local governments through presentations, site visits, and other networking activities.
Baytown is among 19 jurisdictions receiving the Certificate of Distinction, and one of 63 recognized overall.
