As we are about to start our new fiscal year, we are again very energized about the steps forward the city will make.

Through the hard work of the council and city employees, we will again be able to lower the tax rate for the citizens of this great city. This will be our ninth time in the past 10 years we have been able to do so. Even with the lower rates, we will be able to continue the improvement of our city infrastructure.

This year, we will be working in the Voges Street Subdivision. The project will be a total reconstruction of the entire water, sewer, street, and drainage systems. When this project is complete, we will have replaced 84 percent of our city’s infrastructure.

Through the hard work of the water-works department, water and sewer rates will only increase by 3 percent, even though the cost of pipes and other water-system supplies has gone up more the 50 percent.

Maintaining and improving water quality is the highest priority of the city. In the new fiscal year, we plan to add a new water tank. This is the first step in the overall improvements we plan to make to our water plant. It will also help the temperature of our tap water next summer.

The fifth annual Ride to Remember was yet again a huge success this year. The proceeds make building the new restrooms at the park a short distance away. With the help of the Poth Economic Development Corp., we will try to have the project completed during the spring.

The past few years, I have asked for your help in guiding the city. Please help by taking the time to write down your thoughts and email them to us at mayor@cityofpoth.org. We will read each and every comment and do our best to implement them.

God bless.

Travis Pruski is the mayor of Poth.
