Wyoming City Manager's Blog - City Budget nearing Approval

From: http://www.ci.wyoming.mi.us

The City of Wyoming is closing in on the final Council approval of our City Financial Plan (Budget) for 2012-13.  The budget document, as we call it, is probably the largest policy statement the City Council reviews and considers every year.  This document is the result of countless hours of staff time, and subsequent Council time in the preparation, presentation, and review of City financial resources and information.  The budget begins on July 1, 2012, is completed on June 30, 2013, and guides the financial actions of the City for this period. 

In this document, all of the funding is shown for services like police, fire, water, sewer, parks, recreation, building inspections, the City Manager and much, much more.  If the City does not fund an operation, department, or project, it does not get done.

Wyoming City Manager's Blog - Mayor Root, Kentwood

From: http://www.ci.wyoming.mi.us

This week I learned that Mayor Root, from the City of Kentwood, has decided to step down as a result of his ongoing battle with cancer.  For those of you who follow local politics, this is a sad day, as Mayor Root represents one of the few remaining  true “STATESMAN”.  What is a statesman?  To me, a statesman is someone that  is elected to office with the single-minded ideal of making the area he or she represents a better community.  I think West Michigan would agree with me that Mayor Root fits that description to a T.
