From the Mayor's Office - August Update:

Dear Kirtland Residents,

It's been a busy and successful Spring and Summer at the Kirtland Community Center and Senior Center. Kirtland has a facility and a team that does a great job programming for the community, seniors, and youth. What is most impressive to me is the interaction between the youth who are there for Officer Beall's Safety Town or the Egg Hunt with the members of the senior center and its board. Our seniors make it a great place to be during the day as well.

During the evenings and weekends you are likely to meet Junior Orick or Jack Smith in the office, keeping watch over and supporting the facility. Our facility hosts everything from Boy Scout meetings to gymnasium rentals, meetings of American Legion Post 609, 4-H, and Kiwanis, to receptions and graduations and outdoor pavilion rentals. Youth baseball and sports teams use the gymnasium during the year also. This year we had 60 participants in the Junior Olympics program.

Please come see your Kirtland Community Center or check it out online. I think you will be pleased with what Director Jenna Hull and her staff do for the City and our residents. I am asking for your support November 1st . The Kirtland Recreation and Senior Center levy is due for renewal at .85 mils. It is not an increase and continues to be a good value for the community.

The Fall/Winter edition of the City newsletter will be published 9-1-2016. I look forward to providing an update from all the departments including roads and safety forces among others. Finally, farewell to Steve Barrett, the outgoing Kirtland Local Schools Superintendant. All the best to you. We also welcome Bill Wade our incoming Superintendent.

Best Regards,

Doug Davidson
Mayor of Kirtland
