City is working to
keep you informed
As we approach a likely May election in Independence in response to the financial challenges from the "great recession," there have been many comments and questions that the city has been tracking.
We suggest that people seeking more information, or those who have questions, take a look at our web page, http://www.ci.independence.or.us/citymanager/city-finances-and-challenges, or our Facebook page, http://www.facebook.com/IndependenceOregon.
There you will find, along with a great deal of information, a current "frequently asked questions" page (http://www.ci.independence.or.us/citymanager/frequently-asked-questions-about-city-finances) that provides answers to many questions. You will also find a feedback form on the main page, which we hope you will use with questions you have that remain unanswered, as well as information about forums being offered around the city to the public and various clubs.
Please let us know if you would like us to appear at any group meeting to talk about these important issues.
We try to keep both the website and Facebook current with the latest goings on and would strongly encourage folks to "like" us on our Facebook page. It has been particularly helpful during the recent floods, where we post the most current information we have on road closures, sand bag locations and the like. Throughout the year, Facebook has been one of our best ways to let people know all about the fun events going on at the Riverview Park Amphitheater and other activities in the area.
Our council and our staff are dedicated to providing great customer service and truly want to hear from you.
David Clyne, city manager
is one of reason
What with the near mass hysteria of some concerning gun rights and possible changes that may or may not be made to our laws concerning these rights, it's great to hear a voice of reason speak out ... especially when that voice is a law officer in my hometown ("Gun debate sparks local reaction," Jan. 23 Itemizer-Observer).
Thank you, Sheriff Bob Wolfe.
