Eaddy also talked about the challenges that lie ahead.
“I see several major challenges for the upcoming year,” he said. “We must continue to work to attract businesses to our city. A vibrant downtown is the lifeblood of any community. I hope we can engage our commissioners in some additional dialogue regarding rebuilding the courthouse in the downtown. If downtown does not flourish, the recruitment of new industries to our county will be more difficult. Hopefully we can be partners in that endeavor to make a re-examination of moving the courthouse possible.
“Finding a way to re-establish a meaningful recycling program is another challenge we must overcome,” Eaddy continued. “Extending the life of our landfill makes economic sense, and modeling being good stewards of the environment is important.”
But the overall big picture is one of optimism, as Eaddy noted.
“I am confident,” he said, “that by all of us working together, we can make 2019 another banner year for our city.”
