“We are excited to share an exciting new way to keep you informed about the City’s activities, programs, services and new developments. We’ve launched ‘Virtual Community Updates’ as a way for our management team to provide you with critical information, and answer your questions in real time. Like many of you, we’ve had to adjust the way we work to assist the needs of our families. These are difficult times for all of us. So it’s important that we continue working. Continue innovating. And continue to strive to build a better place for all of us when this pandemic is past us. By using Zoom webinars, we’ll be providing you with information that’s of importance to you. I invite you to join us for these new, vital community conversations, and I thank you in advance for taking time out of your busy day to learn more about your city government.”

—Mayor Lovely A. Warren
