Neighbors are invited to mix and mingle. Food and refreshments will be available. Call (520) 791-4711 for information.

Paul's Note - January 24th, 2020

Those of you that follow council meetings know that they usually are a study session in the afternoon followed by a regular meeting in the evening. Both of these are public meetings and they get noticed as such.

Tuesday’s meeting will be a break from that pattern, but not unprecedented. It will be a mayor and council retreat. It won’t be nearly as much fun as it sounds. We’ve had several of these over the past few years, particularly under the leadership of City Manager Michael Ortega.
