Getting ready for fall
Friday, Sept. 4, 2015 at 1:30 PM
Much as they are in your own household, things are busy around Milton City Hall this time of year.
Next week we will see the 14th anniversary of September 11. Most of you can remember exactly where you were and how you felt on that day when you heard the news. We are a resilient country, but the passage of time does not diminish the tragedy that our nation suffered. We hope you will join us next week with Cambridge and Milton high schools to reflect, remember and honor those who lost their lives.
As you look through this newsletter, you’ll see the numerous other things we’ve got going on throughout Milton.
We have the expansion of Bell Memorial Park (check out the update video for a look at the progress), Bulky Trash Day and BSA Shredding Day Sept. 12, MPD’s Firearm Safety Seminar Sept. 17, Better Together’s Business Connection event at Wilbur & Rudy’s Farmtable Sept. 18 and, of course, Crabapple Fest on Saturday, Oct. 3.
Don’t forget to look at our long-running features like the Citizens’ Government Academy, parks programs and new businesses.
Hopefully, as you scroll through this month’s newsletter, you’ll see what I see: A forward thinking municipal government working hard on a number of fronts to enrich its community. Because that’s what this city deserves – a group of people who feel Milton is as special as the folks who live here.
If you agree – heck, even if you don’t – why not stop by my office some time and let me know how you feel? I’d love to hear from you.
Mayor Joe Lockwood
