From the Desk of the Mayor
Dear Fellow Citizens,
As you receive this Edition of the Sandspur you may or may not have had a good Easter Holiday! This brings Spring and all the visitors that goes with this time of year. This year, unlike 2020, is predicted to be back to the long line of weekend traffic and the hustle and bustle on Center Street. As we all try to return to “normal” let us remember to continue to look out for our health, wear your mask, and socially distance when possible. While we continue to receive our vaccinations, it will be a while before we know the effect these immunizations will have on the COVID-19 virus as we move forward. So, continue to stay safe and yes, move forward cautiously to our “new normal.”
The move in date for our remodeled City Hall is May 1st. I continue to look forward to this remolded area for better service to you our customers. This revamped facility will offer easier access to the employees who interact with their customers daily. While this interaction is necessary sometimes, we have learned that we also can provide a very good deliverable service to our customers by using online services. Some of these online services are even a faster deliverable product for our customers. Online payments, permit applications, and request for information are just a couple that easily come to mind. While we all are looking forward to personal interactions again, some things we have learned in this time of isolation will help us provide better customer service in the future.
While I leave you with those thoughts, be on the look out for your up-coming reopening of City Hall. I am sure it will be a soft opening, but there will be ample opportunity for visits and tours of your new facility. Also, visit the City’s web page and Facebook posts for upcoming events, and announcements on procedures to schedule recreational facilities, apply for permits, etc. It is the City Staff’s objective to provide you with the best and most efficient service possible.
As always, if you have any questions give me a call and you will receive the best possible correct answer available. It may not be the answer you want, but it will be truthful and as accurate as possible. I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or (843) 729 0298.
