Mayor's Priorities for 2014
The top 3 priorities this year include:
Sidewalks on Main Street from Valley Street to Big Rock Road: The city has invested in the design and now is working with the state and regional transportation agencies on funding for sidewalk installation on both sides of the roadway.
Infrastructure: The city has 37 miles of aging streets. We need to develop a plan for sustainable funding to ensure that we make the necessary repairs and improvements.
Capital Facility Plan: The city has a number of properties that we may or may not need. We have established an inventory and now we need to determine which properties we should keep to serve the community best and which ones we should sell.
