Message from the Mayor
Greetings to all! I hope you are doing well, staying healthy and finding ways to connect with friends and family during this difficult time. There is no question, during times of crisis, our community comes together!
I want to thank all of our City employees who have stepped up to ensure we are able to continue to provide the best possible service to our residents. Our first responders and city staff continue to provide exceptional service as always. While City Hall and public buildings are closed to the public, our employees take their role as public servants seriously and have continued to keep our buildings, vehicles, operations, and core services operating. They have been innovative – working remotely, staggering shifts, using technology, collaborating, and being flexible in so many ways – while also taking the necessary precautions to remain healthy and stop the spread. This will only make us stronger and more responsive as we go forward!
I also want to thank our businesses and community partners for their assistance and stepping up as well! There are many examples of businesses and people providing assistance: calls with offers to volunteer, offers to assist where needed, sharing of Personal Protective Equipment, meals provided, and many great examples of our community coming together to help us get through this pandemic.
There are also great examples of people continuing to connect in new ways – Facebook Live Coffee with a Cop, a resident bagpiper’s St. Patrick’s Day parade down their street, neighborhood front yard check ins while maintaining 6 foot distance, meal programs, phone check ins for seniors, handmade signs of support and appreciation on front yards and windows, and sharing of photos and videos. There are many other examples of creative, supportive efforts – please share them with us so we can celebrate our community strength: email to email@example.com.
We are fortunate to have wonderful restaurants, bars, and small businesses in our community. They regularly support our local projects and events. We need to support them now, like we never have before! Please support them with a take- out order and your continued business!
There are many who are struggling during this time too. Please do your part to check on neighbors and loved ones, be patient with service agencies and seek help if needed. There are many resources available, please use them if you need them and encourage others to ask for help if needed. We are all impacted by this and we will get through this together!
Stay healthy, take recommended precautions, and please take care!
Proud to serve you,
Mayor Kirsten Holzheimer Gail
