The League of California Cities set its policy goals for 2014 at its Nov. 6 and 7 board of directors meeting in Newport Beach, according to a press release from Lodi City Councilwoman JoAnne Mounce.

Mounce was appointed to the board five years ago as the Central Valley representative and now serves in the organization as an at-large director. Lodi is a member of the league.

According to the press release, the league will focus on new options for economic development and infrastructure investment for cities, as well as building partnerships with various organizations to help cities meet community needs.

It has also focused on pension reform, in order to help cities contain long-term costs.

Lodi City Council members have expressed concerns recently over the future of city employees’ pensions, which are expected to balloon to nearly $17 million in the 2019-20 fiscal year — which council members worry will leave the city strapped for cash.

“The issues before us are some of the most critical to our community, and I value the League’s ongoing efforts on behalf of all cities,” Mounce said in the press release.

The League of California Cities was founded in 1898 to serve as a statewide voice for cities at the state and federal level. It also provides training, education and resources for city officials.
