A Message from Mayor Stan Pickett

Welcome to the first edition of the Council Connection. This publication was created to enhance transparency between the City and its residents. I, along with the City Council and City staff hope that each of you enjoy this new publication and are able to learn more about what the City does for its residents each week. As always, I encourage our residents to stay connected and informed with us by attending public meetings, visiting the City's website, participating in our social media platforms and reading this weekly publication.
