November 2012

As we move closer to the holiday season I’d like to welcome two new employees to our Public Works department. Gary Bridgewater and Russell Watts came on board in mid-October and are working with Bryan to get up to speed on the many systems and areas they support to keep all of us safe and happy.

October 2012

Fall is officially here and the leaves are already changing colors. In addition to the seasonal changes, I’m happy to report our City Council is back to full strength with the appointment of Patience Udall to fill Position 4. Patience is a self-employed business owner and has served our city through volunteering with Gorge Days. Please join me in welcoming her to our Council and congratulate her the next time you see her at the post office or around town.

September 2012

September is here which means school is back in session. While some of us are happier about that than others, one thing we can all agree on is the need to be extra careful driving around town now that kids are waiting for school buses in the morning and walking home in the afternoons. Please be extra careful as you approach bus stops and watch for pedestrians as your navigate our city streets.
