From Havre de Grace Mayor Wayne H. Dougherty:
We have achieved a lot over the last four years. When I was elected Mayor I promised accountability, with my focus on public safety and service to the Citizens. I believe in these very difficult times we are faring well in comparison to many other Jurisdictions. The City is economically stable with one of the major issues being the w&s fund. Our efforts at this time have been ongoing and we will continue to work through this difficult task of balancing this fund.
During these difficult four years we continue to do more with less which has been handed down with funds being cut by the state. This is Highway User Funds and Police Aid.
The City of Havre de Grace will survive these difficult economic times by the mere fact that we have employees who know who they serve and that is each and every Citizen of our Great City. We do have our work cut out for us, and we will continue to explore every avenue now and in the coming year to keep the City within a balanced budget with no tax increase.
