Updates from Mayor Adams


September 8, 2016


I just want to update everyone on some projects in the city that Council and the Mayor's office have been working on.  We are currently having numerous streets paved throughout the city.  We've also started sidewalk repairs/construction in some areas that have deteriorated or were missed with the last sidewalk project.  We are working daily to try to improve and clean several properties in the city that are in disrepair or have been found to be beyond repair. 


I am continuing to work on solutions to drainage issues in areas where flooding occurs with heavy rain and hope to have solutions in place within the next year. 


Thanks to Main Street Program for their wonderfully creative idea for the adoption project for the green spaces downtown.  They all look so beautiful and are each so individual. 


The next phase of the Riverwalk project is expected to be in the hands of the engineers for design and final plans in the next 2 weeks. 


Carrollton Fire Chief and I are heading to North Carolina today to begin the process of replacing our 40 year old ladder truck. 


Very exciting news in the city's committment to combat illegal drug use, sales, and possession in our community!  Carrollton Police Department has taken possession of their new drug K-9 unit who will be ready for service by the end of the month. 


As always, I encourage anyone with concerns or suggestions to contact me or Council members so that we can try to find solutions/resolutions.  The wheels of progress do not always move as quickly as we would like, but the fact that they are turning on numerous projects makes a great start for more forward momentum. 


Thanks to everyone for their communications and suggestions.  Thank you all for loving our town and helping us move Carrollton in a positive direction.


Mayor Robb W. Adams
