Successful policy is built on open public engagement. That is why I was delighted that so many people showed up for our “Fair on the Square.”
It was a fun occasion and a chance to connect, to share what we are doing and to listen to ideas and concerns.
I hope people came because of their civic interest, but I am sure that the beautiful spring day helped a lot too! I know some escaped to Redfish Lake and beyond for the long weekend but to have more than 400 people show up was wonderful to see. We remain committed to bringing City Hall to you so everyone has a chance to share their views both formally and informally.
For those of you that were out of town for the long weekend, we plan to display the information boards again on Tuesday June 5th (from noon to 1pm and from 5pm to 6pm). So please stop by City Hall then to see what issues and projects are under consideration.
Finally, a big shout out to all the businesses that flew the flag on Memorial Day. It was fun for me to visit all our downtown businesses and, on behalf of the City, give out the Stars and Stripes. However, it was particularly gratifying to see so many of the downtown retail stores embracing the day and displaying the flag. It is an important day to recognize and remember and the City is committed to raising its awareness and visibility in our community.
Hope you all had a fantastic Memorial weekend.
