I am very humbled and appreciative of this opportunity that I was afforded. It has truly been a rewarding experience and has been a pleasure to occupy this seat and to serve on the city commission. I’d like to thank my fellow commissioners.”
City Commissioner John Roberts, “We had these lease agreements and we had leased this property out at the airport to Adris Pender, going north towards Greenwood. If any of you had gone north towards Greenwood, Adris cleared all that property, has removed all the trees, stumps and everything and he’s really made great improvement to that piece of property out there and made it look nice. I’m glad that we have that property cleared and it’s not a forest anymore.”
City Commissioner Rico Williams praised the improvement and condition of Optimist Park, “If you haven’t been to the MERE, you need to come look at the trash cans and all that the Optimist Club has done. It really looks nice and it sends a great message to our city. People come in that’s the first thing they notice, ‘what a beautiful trash can, you hear it over and over again. I just want to reiterate how great it is to have participation with an organization like Optimist Club that comes in and does these things. It makes our city look nice.”
