Good evening ladies and gentlemen… it is with great honor that I present to you the 2012 State of the City address.
I stand before you tonight, as the 18th Mayor of our great city and report to you that the state of the city… our city… your city…..is strong and growing, my administration is committed to being a stronger community partner. Our residents and families deserve safe neighborhoods, great schools, clean parks, business opportunities, and reliable public safety. Our city departments are working hard and working smart. Our Electric Department has completed the enormous project ordered by Indiana Department Of Transportation and engineered by Mike Steward of moving all electric poles & lines back 15 feet along State Road 8. I commend our Electric Department for this great undertaking. Our streets-parks department are preparing our parks and pool for the spring-summer season, clearing brush, trimming trees, repairing sidewalks and will soon be striping parking lines and walk ways. Our water department continues to maintain sewer and water mains, change meters and continue to bring our city the very best drinking water. To read more, click here...
