From The Office Of The Mayor
Greetings neighbors and friends:
The City Council is still investigating the cost of a lift station replacement and sewer lining at the North Lift Station (West Scott and Lotte St.).
As soon as the frost gets out of the ground, the war on pot holes begins. Please be patient with us as we will get to all those needing addressed. Please contact City Hall for those in your area.
The Finance Committee has met and is exploring options to purchase a new squad car. At this writing, we are investigating the possibility of a grant to take care of parcel funding towards this purchase. If this grant fails the Finance Committee will recommend other options.
The Finance Committee met with the City Clerk several times to review the new fiscal budget. After much discussion and input there was a Special Meeting held to recommend passage of the budget. Based on the recommendation of the Finance Committee and the City Clerk, the City Council unanimously approved the new budget. I personally would like to thank Ann Schmidt, City Clerk/Financial Officer, and her staff for their diligence in preparing this budget. Ann prepares a very informative presentation for the City Council to review. Thank you Ann.
Remember Blue Grass Days is right around the corner. The Community Club could use all the volunteers they can get. Please contact the Community Club to offer up your help. With that we will be having the 5K run/walk Friday night, June 6, 2014. To get ready, come run/walk with the Mayor every Saturday, rain or shine, at 8:00 a.m. starting April 5, 2014. We will do this each Saturday until the race. Please bring a friend and run/walk at your pace. Just a reminder, the race course is not controlled, so please be aware of all traffic.
From my family to yours, please have a blessed and Happy Easter.
Don’t forget to adopt our Volunteer Fireman and sign up to provide a simple meal as a way to say thank you for all they do - contact Chief Brian Seamer.
Please plan on attending your City Council Meetings held on the 1stand 3rdMonday of each month. Your input is needed.
Please remember our men and women in uniform; because of what they do and what they have done I am able to write this letter. God bless each and every one of them.
In closing, I would like to add that it is an honor to serve this community. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free contact me at City Hall 381-4700 or the City cell phone 349-1359, or my home phone at 381-2803.
Sincerely, Brinson L. Kinzer, Mayor of the City of Blue Grass
