From the City Administrator - January, 2016:
2015: An Exceptional Year
I'm beginning to sound like a stuck record each year. However, 2015 was
another banner year for Maize. Each of the economic and operational
challenges were met and exceeded. The 2015 budget ended well within
guidelines and provided a higher than projected cash carryover. Demands for
service continued to increase in all areas including Police, Public Works and
the Administration Departments. A very stable group of professional
employees are meeting these increases in demands. They have the training,
necessary equipment, and enjoy a supportive work environment. Like any
successful business, our employees are our greatest strength. Thanks to our City
Council for their vision, support and provisions during this past year.
Good things are happening in Maize and we all look forward to the growth of
