As Mayor of the City of Livingston, I am pleased to present the 2017 Annual Report to the People which recaps important projects, events and activities the City undertook last year.
2017 began as a tumultuous year as we lost our long-time friend and City Manager Marilyn Sutton in March, 2017. Marilyn devoted 43 years of her life to improve the quality of life for all of the citizens of this community. This was a tough time for us all but I had the unique perspective of being able to witness how our 84 full-time and 6 regular part-time dedicated employees pulled together and provided us with the same quality services in which we are accustomed to here at the City of Livingston.
I would also like to thank the numerous volunteers that work tirelessly to provide programming and maintenance for our baseball fields, softball fields, soccer fields, football fields and of course our rodeo arena and fairgrounds. We also have many community volunteers that assist with events such as Easter Eggstravaganza, Hometown Christmas events and our ever-growing lighted Christmas Parade.
I consider it an honor and privilege to serve as the Mayor of this wonderful community and on behalf of the City Council and myself we take great pride in telling newcomers that Livingston is “a great place to call home.”
