Meridian Mayor de Weerd delivers her 2012 State of the City address
Mayor Tammy de Weerd delivered the Meridian State of the City address to approximately 500 people at the Meridian Middle School auditorium Wednesday night. The Mayor outlined a vision for the City to be reflective of the values of its citizens of being accountable, responsive, and truly connected to one another.
Using the theme "Much Done, More to Do", Mayor De Weerd identified five priority areas she will focus on over the next four years based upon information she gathered from the community during her reelection campaign.
Accordingly, her five focus areas for the next four years include: Safe Community; Responsive Government; Places to Go; Family Wage Jobs; and Transportation.
As part of her speech, Mayor Tammy de Weerd also announced June 9, 2012 as the grand opening date for the Julius M. Kleiner Park on the corner of Fairview and Eagle. The park will also house the new Meridian Senior Center which will relocate to the park in 2012. In addition, Mayor Tammy announced that the Meridian Food Bank will have a new home as they just completed the purchase of the old Senior Center thanks to a generous anonymous donation.
