From the Mayor
A couple of my favorite things about the month of November are in the reflections of our lives and how our personal decisions can alter minor and major things. Let me explain.
Local and State elections have just concluded and many of you exercised your right to vote. In the City of Greenfield, there was only one race in which to vote, and incumbent Kerry Grass was once again selected as District 5's representative for City Council. The other races in Greenfield were unopposed which included my own race as your Mayor. I have enjoyed my first two years in office while fulfilling the remaining term of a great man the late Mayor Dick Pasco. Now I look forward to my own term as your Mayor. My vision for the next four years remains the same; to continue our progress on infrastructure, to continue our commitment to public safety, and to reach our goal of increasing jobs by attracting new businesses or expanding existing ones.
November is also the month that we celebrate giving thanks during the holidays of Veteran's Day and Thanksgiving. Friends and family gather, meals are prepared, memories are rekindled and new ones made. However I do ask that you take a minute and remember those less fortunate. Consider giving to the local charities and organizations that assist those in need of food, shelter, and clothing.
I also ask that you take a moment and be thankful for the men and women in our Armed Forces. Veteran's Day is November 11th and our thanks and gratitude should be expressed to those that have served and/or continue to serve. While November is the month for these reflections, we should be thankful for what we have every day.
From all of us at City Hall, be thankful, enjoy the holidays, and have a great month!
Chuck Fewell, Mayor
Status of current city projects
City meeting videos are available for mobile devices now.
City meetings have been available online for several years now, but they require a Flash plugin to view. This made viewing the videos on your mobile devices impossible. We have upgraded our media server and we now produce and stream the videos in formats viewable by IOS (Apple) and Android (Samsung, Fire, Motorola, others). Simply look for the link under the video box and click on the link appropriate for your device.
Why do we preserve history? We all have memories that we keep near to our hearts. We all have memories that are etched in our brains because the moment made such an impact we can't forget......sometimes no matter how hard we try. But we hold on to those memories. When we actually find a piece of history we always do our best to preserve it. We preserve it as a memorial to those that created it and to allow future generations the opportunity to enjoy it and learn from it. So we preserve history in different ways.

Once you've made a pecan pie in a cast-iron skillet, you may never go back to a pie plate. Simply press a refrigerated pie crust into the skillet, sprinkle with sugar, top with the pecan mixture, and bake. Serving it in the skillet is also easy and makes the dish even more Southern
