President Rozema introduced our City Commissioner Christine Teel, who in turn introduced our new Assistant City Manager, Kathleen Gunn - (954) 828-5026.

She also noted that everyone should carefully check all the new insurance rates. Everyone in “City Hall” is cooperating fully with our new City Manager and noting many improvements. She noted that there will be a meeting at the Community Center on January 24th, relative to the construction of Opus South. She also announced the date for the Air & Sea Show would be on April 30th and May 1st.
