From the Mayor
Welcome to the month of May. One of the great traditions in Indiana is the running of the Indianapolis 500. This year is particularly special as May 29th will be the 100th running of this historic race. Many of you are also hoping that the weather will finally make the turn as spring races to the finish line. I too feel this way and am wondering if nice weather will ever arrive.
The month of May also is a month for remembering. Memorial Day is honored throughout the United States and the residents of Greenfield and Hancock County take great pride in remembering those that have gone before us. Memorial Day allows our daily remembrance to be celebrated with millions of people nationwide and forms a special bond on this special day.
So I ask that you take a moment this month to remember a special person. Take a moment to thank a veteran for their service and sacrifice, or a moment to smile at a stranger. Take a moment to be an inspiration, and together we can have a memorable month of May.
From all of us at City Hall; have a great month!
Chuck Fewell, Mayor

Wipes are not flushable!
Do you use "Flushable" wipes? You may be surprised to find they are not flushable at all. In fact, they may be causing costly damage to your sewer system.
Donate to the Statue!
The Reading with Riley Statue will be a permanent reminder of Indiana's Bicentennial. A bronze likeness of Riley will be seated on a bench in front of the Riley Boyhood Home in Greenfield. Visitors will be able to sit next to the poet, and take a photo or two.
By making a donation you will help secure a piece of artwork that will be a permanent remembrance and *signature piece* of Indiana's Bicentennial year.

A message from your City of Greenfield Water Department.
Residents of Greenfield,
We have become aware of companies that are offering insurance on the water service lines leading from the City connection to your home. These parties have printed information on their mailing advertisements that may give the impression that the City is a participant of the insurance offer. The City of Greenfield is in no way associated with and does not endorse any insurance program. The Water Utility has the responsibility for the connection from the water main to 4ft beyond the meter pit. After that 4ft the property owner is then responsible and must make any repairs necessary on that line. We would advise that anyone wishing to participate in an insurance program for their water service lines be informed and research the offer properly before proceeding. Should you have any questions or concerns please contact the Water Department at 317-477-4350.
Respectfully,City of Greenfield Water Utility
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.
Think about your high school yearbook. If you are like me you probably looked at it for a few days after you received it, reminisced about the moments captured in the pictures, complained because you didn't get voted 'Most Popular' and then put the book on a shelf to never be opened again for 20-30 years. Sound like you?
Yearbooks are an amazing time capsule. It's a book that you don't feel motivated to revisit and open every day but you also don't want to throw it away. And although we take for granted the information that is captured inside, they contain an amazing amount of historical information.

It's grilling time again! This Latin-inspired steak pairs perfectly with rice and beans. Slice leftovers really thin and serve on crusty day-old rolls for an amazing lunch or snack afterwards.
