Message from the Mayor:
Dear Friends and Neighbors,
Happy New Year to all of you, I hope you are staying warm in this frigid weather. Spring will surely be especially welcomed this year. With the passage of the 2018 budget, the City was able to improve the lagers pension plan for our employees, add another fire fighter position and for the first time, higher a horticulturist in the parks department. All of these are welcomed improvements for the city.
Filings for the 2018 elections closed at 5:00 pm on January 16 and the people, below, filed to run:
*Sam Scherer, Mayor *Keith Peters, Alderman Ward I *Nicholas Lindley, Alderman Ward I
*Greg Lauter, Alderman Ward II *James (Kent) Barnett, Alderman Ward II, *Chris Gorman, Alderwoman Ward III
After 8 years of holding the office of Mayor, I have decided not to seek re-election as you can see. It has been truly a joy and a privilege to serve the community in this capacity, but it is time for me to step aside. I have complete confidence that the next group of elected officials will continue to make Shrewsbury a wonderful place to live and work. Although I am stepping down, there is still a lot of work to be done over the next few months. The City is presently working on the City’s comprehensive plan. We are seeking residents’ input on the future of our City and what that future looks like to you; we hope you will drop by our upcoming Open House on Wednesday, January 31, 2018 from 5-7 p.m. in the Aldermanic Chambers. We greatly value your feedback and ideas and look forward to learning about your vision next Wednesday!
