 Mayors Corner 

As we move in to the holiday season, it is appropriate for all of us to reflect back on a productive 2014 and to enjoy the festive time with our family and friends.  The City of Clive continues to be blessed with outstanding employees, engaged residents and successful business partners.  As we look forward in to 2015, you can expect to see significant 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.  These items are mentioned because they represent top priorities for the City Council and our staff leadership as part of our strategic plan and vision for Clive 2030.  We look forward to a new year of collaborating with our neighboring cities/counties in the areas of fire/EMS service, animal control and management of the Walnut Creek Watershed with the establishment of a new regional watershed management authority. 

Once again, I want to thank the City Council for their leadership in 2014 and express my appreciation to all of our dedicated employees that provide high quality services to all of us every day.  I wish all of you a safe, happy and productive holiday season!  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.
