Message from the Mayor

 

 

Driving down the Polecat Bench following an airport board meeting, I noticed bugs staining my windshield as a few raindrops landed. Yes spring is here, and quite welcome, even if it ushers various changes along the way.

Most of the snow we battled this winter is melted, revealing some awfully sandy roads – over 1,500 tons of sand I am told. That’s three time the average amount. Thankfully the Streets Department is hard at it, working extra shifts to get things cleaned up. Even with Nevin Jacobs on the bench from an injury, I am confident it will not take three times as long to sweep up the accumulation.On another driving subject, parking in downtown is once again a discussion topic. Specifically, folks are parking in the same spot all day. I am aware downtown uses have changed and we have a blend of retail and professional businesses. Therefore, it’s a tough subject without a perfect solution, but my request is that all long-term, downtown parkers review their options and be as considerate as possible of the businesses who need customer traffic to make a living. Remember, there are city lots available.  Please try to utilize them to open a space or two in front of our retailers. I appreciate your help in making Powell’s businesses successful.Shifting gears, spring is bringing change to the city in the way of several retirements. And because our people are important assets, their departures will be missed. On March 20th, the Honorable Judge James Allison and our Municipal Court Clerk Joy Ness announced their last day will be May 31st. If your dog was at large or your driving habits suspect in the last few decades you have met this team. Their hard work and commitment to the City of Powell hasn’t gone unnoticed. If you see Jim or Joy wish them a long and successful retirement.Finance Director Annette Thorington, an employee who works mostly behind the scenes, is retiring this month. I wonder who will answer my budget questions in a kindly manner without embarrassing me? During my time with the city, I have counted on Annette to appear from the back of council meetings and clarify what fund, grant, account, etc., we should use to make a project successful. I can also count on hearing the city’s auditor declare another clean, unqualified opinion of our finances, a statement of quality made due to Annette’s hard work, knowledge and dedication. Thankfully, her advance warning regarding retirement has allowed us time to make smooth transition path to the future. Best wishes, Annette.

Suffice it to say, ALL of the staff at city play a huge role in making Powell a great place to live.
