It is my privilege to serve as Commissioner. Like many fully developed suburbs, we are challenged to provide cost effective services and improve aging infrastructure while keeping taxes affordable. I have worked to stabilize costs and develop sustainable funding to address infrastructure needs. We must develop additional revenue sources and attracting new businesses will be a major focus going forward, in addition to revitalizing our parks and pools and furthering traffic safety efforts. logo
