I would like to establish flood control for housing growth and more businesses to come to the community.
Maintaining electrical to the community and water. Also need to keep people informed about what is happening in the community during those times of disasters. Get the people to listen to radio stations and the city's face book page.
#1 Flood control, we need to establish it to keep from having a majority of the town from being placed in a flood zone. That would cause houses to have flood insurance that would likely to keep people from building here. That would also save property damage.

#2 Housing developments, we need future places for people to build new houses that would bring more people into our community and school system.

#3 Business developments, we need to get more businesses back in the community. That is a hard one with everything on-line but there are service orientated businesses that could work in the community. Would like to find some manufacturing business also. It would be nice to come up with a plan that the city can help with some kind of available aid.
Keeping people informed about what the city is doing and what the people expect the city to do. That is a hard one to accomplish but need to get the public to come to City Council meetings to listen and ask more questions of what is going on. Possibly put more information on the cities' website.
