A New Year to Be Inspired
January/February – Joanne Osborne, Vice Mayor
Happy New Year! These three words always make us reflect first on the year past and then into the year ahead. They inspire resolutions, fresh starts, and changes for the better. So, how about a couple more; start the year inspired and be an inspiration to others!
You could be inspired to know that your City has great expectations and we want to share them with you.
We are working hard in laying a strong foundation for new jobs and thoughful development. Be inspired to know that we continue to chip away at lowering taxes. In fact, grocery taxes will go down another .25 percent this month!
Be inspired that your fellow neighbors may be one of the outstanding citizens stepping up and volunteering on committees and commissions. Be thankful there are non-profits, charities, and community leaders that work tirelessly to improve the lives of those less fortunate.
Finally, be an inspiration to someone else. Give of your time, no matter how small. The smallest gestures of kindness make the largest impacts in people’s lives.
