Hello, residents and friends of Naperville! April showers bring May flowers, and the beauty of spring is all around us. Were you able to see nature’s fireworks display in April when thunderclouds rolled through and hail dropped from the sky? It was a magnificent display, and we now have beautiful flowers that have blossomed because of the water that streamed from the heavens.
Hello, residents and friends of Naperville! Everybody loves a parade, and this year’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade was one of the finest we’ve had for many years. The weather was fantastic, and I never expected to see people wearing shorts in March. Another parade is coming up, and this one is for Memorial Day where we honor those men and women who have served in the armed forces and also remember those who gave the supreme sacrifice.
Naperville Mayor A. George Pradel writes “The year 2012 has brought many changes — some good and some not so good. First of all, we have a balanced budget! Much of this success is due to our city manager, Finance Department and staff who have labored over reductions in every facet of the budget. I think God had a part in this too, because our budget for snow removal was hardly used so far this year.”

My hope for the New Year is that the economy will rebound and everyone will experience prosperity. We are so fortunate to have such a wonderful staff working for the city. Each and every employee is valuable, needed and appreciated. The city is not immune to the economic downturn the world is experiencing, and it has been difficult for the council and myself to equalize compensation for all employees’ services, both union and nonunion. I personally want to say thank you to all employees and wish them a prosperous and healthy New Year.
