Steve Hall

As City Manager, I welcome your suggestions about ways to improve, compliments on a job well done, and complaints about service delivery that did not meet your expectations or caused you concern. All suggestions and complaints are taken seriously.

Compliments let me know that our service to you was valued. Complaints help me understand where we need to improve.

Thank you so much for taking the time to comment!

If sending an e-mail, please provide as much information as possible about the situation, such as:
