Pocatello City Council Chambers

The City of Pocatello has two new documents that will help steer the City today and in the years ahead. 


At Thursday’s Pocatello City Council Meeting, the Council voted to approve a resolution adopting a new mission statement and value statements for the City. 


“The declarations will guide decisions by elected officials, City leaders, and employees,” said Mayor Brian Blad. “For the community as a whole, they show what drives the City on a day-to-day basis and into the future.”  


The full mission statement reads “Pocatello is a vibrant community promoting a high quality of life through innovation, growth, respect, inclusiveness and pride in who we are.” Meanwhile, the value statements are: 


We serve with patience, humility and respect.

We promote and engage in open dialogue.

We treat fellow employees and citizens with compassion and empathy.

We act with integrity, honesty and fairness.

We commit to creativity and embracing possibilities.

We lead with conviction and passion.

We demonstrate pride in our community.


“Thank you to Dr. Jim DiSanza and Dr. John Gribas from Idaho State University for helping me and the Council craft these statements,” Mayor Blad said. “We greatly appreciate their expertise and it has been fantastic to partner with Idaho State University for this effort.”
