Message from the Mayor
This fall is an exciting time for the City. We welcome Abigail Elder as our new city manager and Nubia Contreras the new community engagement and special projects coordinator.
Abigail brings a wealth of local government management experience, most recently serving as director of community services and engagement and director of the mayor’s office for the City of Beaverton. She’s a collaborative, strong leader who values DEI (diversity, equity and inclusion), sustainability, and solutions that address today’s issues.
On the less glamourous but essential side of City business, we have a number of infrastructure upgrades happening. Projects are planned for the City’s wastewater treatment plant. We also successfully kicked-off of the City’s decade-long water / sewer reconstruction project amid material supply challenges. The water-sewer lines on Cascade Avenue are now upgraded, and a second project on Sherman Avenue recently started. We thank the community for your patience as local streets and neighborhoods are disrupted.
Please keep an eye out for the City Council 2022 Work Plan community survey. We’ll share this on the City’s website, through local media and social media when it’s ready. We hope you’ll provide your input and ideas to inform our planning session in the new year. Your thoughts are always welcome on any topic. Feel free to email me at email@example.com.
