It is hard to believe that it has been 45 days since I took the oath. There has been lots of learning, growing, and changing. As you enter village hall you will see many new faces. Please take the time to introduce yourself and be patient as we are working hard to implement new and effective systems that will allow us to perform our jobs more efficiently. I have enjoyed driving around and meeting many of you in your driveways. A significant focus for right now is creating a sustainable financial model in a time where our village finances are challenged. I have been meeting with potential business owners and as of today, we are scheduled to have 7 new businesses either open or breaking ground by the end of the year. Board meetings look and feel different. Department heads are in attendance and providing detailed reports regarding finances, public works, police, and fire while Trustees are sharing valuable committee information. Please consider joining us on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of every month at 6:00pm. We are also working on adding a village YouTube channel so that we can upload meeting videos for you to watch as time permits. We have implemented several new community touch points including, Thursday morning walk & talks starting at 6am in Lakeview Park, movie nights every other Friday, and coffee with a cop. We are looking forward to our upcoming Independence Day Parade on July 3rd , The Lynvinia Music Festival on July 9th as well as Lynwood Fest on August 21st. Cleanup week is scheduled for July 19th, and we are planning to work on some beautification projects. Contact village hall if you are interested in volunteering. As promised, recycling is coming back to Lynwood in September. Be sure to check the Village of Lynwood website often for calendar updates. You can also follow us on the official Village of Lynwood Facebook page. It is the one with our gold medallion logo as a profile picture. Please know that I am working hard to stabilize our infrastructure and create a better future for this village, but I cannot do it without this amazing team and your support. I am always a phone call, email or office visit away.
Yours In Service
Mayor Jada D. Curry
