City Administrator’s Notes - July 2013

First I’d like to say good-bye and fair well. You are wonderful people living in a beautiful city – it’s been a great experience working for you. I am confident that Don, the council, and the new administrator will oversee continued improvements in the coming years! Please involve yourselves in city business – it only works well when people pay attention and voice their opinions!

Among the current noteworthy issues:

  1. We are once again seeking an intrepid citizen to fill a vacancy on our council. If you’re interested in helping lead the city to a better future, please give us a call!
  2. Robert Miller, former planning commission member and volunteer “extra-ordinaire” presented the council with plans to build a multi-use stage/meeting space, modeled after an historic block house. They liked the idea and are considering placement near the playground. Please come to city hall and share your thoughts with us.
  3. Pathway repairs. Please be careful walking/riding on our pathways! We will be making repairs to the neediest areas this summer, be aware that some spots will be temporarily torn up.
  4. Pay by Credit Card! This month I will be bringing to council a “merchant services” contract that will  finally allow us to accept credit card payments. – It probably will not be set up in time for the July billing, but August seems likely.
