Want to see what everyone is talking about from the recent State of the City address? The City of Huntsville has you covered.
The event took place on Tuesday, October 30. Attendees visited with all the City departments heard a presentation by City Manager Aron Kulhavy and enjoyed a rousing closing by Mayor Andy Brauninger (watch to the end for a birthday surprise).
Kulhavy focused his presentation on the highlights of 2018, including the addition of new digital messaging signs and the opening of the William H. Hodges Education Building at the Sam Houston Statue Visitor Center.
“We have tons of things going on in the City,” Kulhavy said. “One of the things people ask all the time is ‘What are they building?’ That is our number 1 question.”
Kulhavy revealed a new GIS feature that maps the major economic development projects in progress, as well as capital improvement projects and bond projects. The new map is located online at HuntsvilleTX.gov/Projects. He also gave updates on the three bond propositions approved by voters in 2016 and unveiled the first renderings of the new fire and police department buildings called for in the bonds.
Mayor Andy Brauninger thanked the many citizens who volunteer for boards and committees in the City.
“Huntsville is about our citizens giving their lives away for their community,” Brauninger said Tuesday night. “Give your life away, you will get it back tenfold. This city is full of loving, caring, dedicated people.”
