BY JAN BURRELL
Extraordinary times call for extraordinary efforts, and the citizens and employees of Roy City certainly know how to jump in and engage in those endeavors. Our residents and staff have walked through difficult days during 2020, and yet, we continue to see progress in our city and positive attitudes continue to abound. I have seen multiple necessary budget adjustments, road projects moving forward, improvements in our parks (even the dog park, just ask Ruth Osborne) and strong support for our public safety teams.
The windstorm devastation that many of our community members witnessed on the morning of September 9 was just another historic event that called for neighbors, friends and city staff to pull together and make things happen. It was inspiring to see that our community members and city workers were not only willing to help those within our community circle, but also eager to reach out to neighboring communities in need. Countless hours were donated by individuals as well as our city workforce and again, we see evidence of ONE TOWN – ONE TEAM. It has often been said that in a crisis, we see either the best or the worst characteristics of people. I am proud to belong to a community where others always seem to rise to their best. Thanks again to our incredible citizens and staff.
