Mission, Vision, & Values

Our Mission


Together – means that members of this organization and city are appropriately involved in decision-making, problem solving and communications to improve the quality of life in Dinuba.

Better – means to build on all community assets and make improvements consistent with the goals and direction established by the residents through their elected Council. Better also means as we go about our day-to-day work we will strive to deliver superior services to our residents.

Community – means individuals living and working together who participate and cooperate in defining a collective vision supporting and partnering with each other to achieve common goals.
