MESSAGE FROM THE MAYOR - FAIRFIELD DITCH

Details

Our commitment to investing in neighborhoods is being demonstrated by the flood control project in the Dalevue-Fernwood neighborhood along the Fairfield Ditch.

We're building an earthen berm, to hold back flood water, and constructing an already planned larger diameter, 48-inch stormwater pipe and inlets. The project will protect the area up to a 100-year flood event.

CITY WORKERS - VOICE OF THE TOWNSHIP

Details

Most of us have seen recent articles in the local newspapers and broadcasts on the local news stations about ordinances to end collective bargaining for all City workers except police and firefighters. I believe it is important for citizens to attend the City Council meetings so that they can stay abreast of what is being addressed, and I believe it is important that we share our views on the topics being discussed. When I attended the May 20, 2014 City Council Meeting, I heard numerous City...
