As the Mayor of this City I feel excited that we have made great strides to move the City in a forward direction. This would not be possible without the direction of our City Council; yes the Administration plays a very important role in that movement. But ultimately without the approval of Council, the administration cannot accomplish the things that move our City in a forward direction.
In the last 3 years working together with Council we have secured over 4.6 million dollars in grant funding for our City. This equals more than 6 million dollars in progress of our City. These grants are extremely competitive, more so than past years, as more communities, like our own, are applying for these monies to help with similar projects. Gaining the successful edge in such a competitive arena is through planning.
