We want to reassure the community we serve that services will continue, and the exciting projects and programs we have in place will move forward with rejuvenated energy. We have 1,400 professional and passionate employees who will continue service to our citizens and visitors. We will strive to improve with a commitment to public service that is stronger than ever.”
