June 2017 Mayor’s Message
The school year has ended and everyone is ready for summer. Two special people will be leaving the Cuba City School District this year. Roger Kordus, administrator, and Jim Boebel, high school principal, will be moving on to new ventures in their lives as they move onto different districts. I want to congratulate and thank them for serving our district with great dignity and professionalism. I especially want to thank Mr. Kordus for bringing the schools back to the city. We need the schools to be a part of the city and Cuba City needs the involvement of the schools. Roger was a big part of the Economic Development Group, the Library Board, and the Joint Review Board. He worked long and hard to come up with a solution to our space problems at the elementary school. I wish them good luck and the very best life has to offer. I would like to thank all the teachers and administrative assistants for another great year. We are so fortunate to have dedicated teachers that shape our children in to the leaders of tomorrow.
We are beginning summer with so many positive things happening. With the Chamber of Commerce leading the way and the businesses support, we have added four more flower pots and six new benches to Main Street. They look great! The remodeling of the Blackbourn Components building is getting a completely new look. If you haven’t seen it, please drive by. Ag Tech had a very successful spring planting season and will soon be constructing their large fertilizer storage tank. I salute all businesses in the business park and throughout the city for your commitment in making Cuba City the best small town in Wisconsin.
Our street projects will be getting under way very soon. Some major street like Roosevelt/County H and School Street will be getting new ultra-thin blacktop. The block of Benton Street from Main to Madison and McKinley from Randolph Street to School Street will be getting total reconstruction. As the street work begins, please drive safely as the work is being done.
May 31st was a sad day for our community. Calvin Hughes, the administrative assistant for the Police Department retired. He has been the true meaning of what a great employee is. City Hall will not be the same without his smile and humor after 23 years. We wish him the best in his retirement. Calvin & Marilyn have been great friends from the time they moved to Cuba City. Please congratulate Calvin when you see him. When my son Jason and Calvin and Marilyn’s daughter Melody got married, my respect and admiration for Calvin has grown and meant so much. He is one of kind!
I want to congratulate Becky from City Hall on her recent marriage to Lucas Hill. I wish you both a long and happy married life. So if you haven’t figured it out yet, we now have two Mrs. Hill working together. We are so lucky to have two great ladies working for Cuba City. Thank you both for all you do for the City.
In closing, please have a safe summer. Everyone is a part of the Cuba City family, so have some fun over the next 3 months. It is my honor to serve as Mayor of Cuba City.
