It is my pleasure to present the 2022 Annual Report. Meridian is a thriving community. This past year, we have seen infrastructure development, economic vibrancy and great strides in transportation initiatives. We continued to make open spaces and recreation a priority through new pathways and additional amenities. Services were enhanced through the expansion of public safety. We engaged with key stakeholders looking for partnership solutions and built off the momentum of collaboration. And, according to our residents, we continued to provide the level of customer service our citizens have come to expect.
I take pride in the accomplishments of your Meridian team that you will see throughout this report. As you read through, know that your public servants are guided by the Meridian Way, providing CARE (Customer Service, Accountability, Respect, and Excellence) to our community in a timely, friendly, professional, and solution-oriented manner. City employees are also guided by six key areas of our Strategic Plan as we plan for the future: Responsible Growth; Transportation & Infrastructure; Business & Economic Vitality; Public Health & Safety; Vibrant & Sustainable Community; and Government Excellence. By committing to our values and focus areas, we are able to meet our mission which is to deliver superior service through committed, equipped employees dedicated to the stewardship of the public’s resources while being a vibrant, livable, and connected community.
Meridian is Built for Business and Designed for Living, and as your Mayor, I am committed to addressing the challenges our residents and business owners face. As your city, we will innovate the work we do and the services we deliver. We will continue to build off the successes of 2022, as there is more work to be done. I look forward to discovering what we can accomplish together and the great milestones ahead. I am confident that we will exceed your expectations as we build upon our vision to be the West’s premier community in which to live, work and raise a family.
