Council candidate eager to continue moving forward

Friday, October 21, 2011

As your current mayor, I am pleased the City of Brazil has moved forward in positive ways.

Working with the current City Council and Board of Works, the City of Brazil has moved forward.

There is much more work to be done, and this is why I have chosen to run for City Council.

Some of the projects the current administration has accomplished include:

* In May of 2006, the city received a grant for $1,435,350, to help with revitalization. To date, the city has constructed seven new homes and rehabilitated one additional home,

* City officials worked in conjunction with county officials to pave Pinckley Street, saving citizens approximately $50,000 by not contracting it out,

* In May 2010, the city received a grant for $2,444,872. This money was used for improvements to the water mains, water meters, fire hydrants and installation of a new 750,000-gallon elevated tank at Craig Park.

The city also installed a new booster station and the Supervisory Control and Dada Acquisition (SCADA) system, and

* Early 2011, the sidewalk project was completed.

The city will continue to maintain and repair sidewalks on a regular basis.

Street paving is a priority, as money becomes available, officials have begun the process of paving. Replacing old water lines with new is a must to ensure a newly paved street does not have to be disturbed, because of a water leak.

I would appreciate your support in the upcoming election.
