 Mayors Corner 

I would like to take this opportunity to wish everyone a Happy New Year!  We have much to look forward to in 2015.  We are excited about future investments in the Clive Greenbelt Trail and park system, continued work and planning for upgrading our public facilities and continued focus on investments and activities that make Clive a premier location for families and businesses.  Of particular interest is the potential collaboration with our friends in Windsor Heights regarding a proposal to merge our Fire and EMS Departments together in an effort to streamline, combine resources and improve call response times to name just a few benefits.  I am proud of our Fire Chiefs from both communities for taking the initiative by seeing a joint need and for working together over the last 18 months to create viable plan for both of our City Councils to consider.  Efforts such as these really take our community to the next level and I am hopeful that the proposal will move forward in 2015.   We will continue to work on other areas of regional collaboration with animal control and management of the Walnut Creek Watershed with the establishment of a new regional watershed management authority.  There is a long list of projects and various initiatives coming in 2015 and this, no doubt, will be a very exciting and productive year. 

As always, it is an honor and a privilege to serve as your Mayor.  Please feel free to contact me directly with any questions you may have.
