From Mayor Doug Davidson

Dear Kirtland Residents,

There are a multitude of topics to cover, but I narrowed it down to just a few.

First I wanted to commend the City Council for improving and passing the animal ordinance, Chapter 618 in our code. This modification provides more protection for residents and greater flexibility for law enforcement in regards to dangerous dogs giving our police the legal basis to act sooner. The ordinance also increases penalties against animal abuse. Residents brought their concerns to City Council and they worked diligently until the legislation was completed.

Shortly after the city was chartered, local resident, F. Marvin Bahr was appointed to the Board of Zoning Appeals. That was about the same time his daughter Emily Bahr and I started kindergarten in Mrs. Ayers class at Kirtland Elementary. 44 years later, Marvin is stepping down from the Board of Zoning Appeals. His hard work and leadership not only on the board but also charter review commissions will continue to positively impact the city for years to come. I am grateful for all the board and commission members who generously give their time for our community.

Speaking of the community, the Kirtland Kiwanis, the Garden Club of Kirtland, and members of the American Legion did a fantastic job beautifying our Kirtland Area Veterans Memorial and City Hall with mulch and flowers recently. They did find the answer to the age-old question "How many wheelbarrows in a truckload of mulch"- one wheelbarrow at a time. Memorial bricks are available for purchase and are a wonderful way to pay tribute to our veterans. Order forms can be found at the memorial site or on the city's website.

Congratulations and Good Luck to our KHS Class of 2017 graduates. I know you will continue to make us proud as you go forth in all directions.

Just a reminder, the annual Strawberry Festival will be held June 15 to June 18. The festival has something for everyone to enjoy especially some delicious strawberry treats. I look forward to seeing you there.

Mayor Doug Davidson
