Office of the City Manager , Randy Martin         

Citizens, Business Owners & Other Interested Parties:      

It is important to recognize the performance of employees periodically and especially when they exceed expectations in their achievements.  Such is the case with the Animal Services division of the Police Department which recently won statewide peer recognition as detailed in the Chief of Police’s report.  Congratulations are in order to all departments and staff that supported the transformation which has occurred at animal services and in their facilities over the past year plus.  Special credit is due to all of our dedicated animal services staff, volunteers and Police Department leadership for the incredible efforts that led to the special recognition. 

Also, of particular significance at this time and most deserving of special recognition, are the efforts of various staff working with the incredible team of community volunteers who comprise the Sugar Festival Committee and the incredible support of sponsors for the massive undertaking necessary to make this outstanding annual communitywide event the huge success that it has become in showcasing America’s Sweetest Town to the region, state and beyond.  I look forward to the event every year, but I am particularly excited about several new activities planned for the 2023 installment that should make this year a classic to remember.  Great job thus far to all involved and I highly encourage locals to be very engaged and supportive of the event.

In the last several months, your City Commission, advisors and staff have been actively pursuing necessary steps to scrutinize various development plans for new housing, commercial/industrial development and amenities that collectively have strong potential to greatly improve our community over the next several years and provide new opportunities to meet community needs and desires.  This circumstance has developed into an opportunity for smart growth of the boundaries, service areas, population and economic opportunities for all Clewiston area citizens, businesses and visitors.  The level of interest and activity is unprecedented in this community and is in great part the culmination of the last several years of planning and improvement efforts undertaken by the city with the blessing of your elected officials to pursue significantly higher amounts of federal and state financial support to enhance infrastructure, address pent up demand for service level changes and other key factors which have set the stage for the development conditions to encourage private sector investment in our community.  I encourage interested parties to share your input as this crucial stage continues to progress, but I assure you city officials intend to do our utmost to make Clewiston the best it can be while preserving the charm and character that make it such a special place to call home.

Thank you for your continued support and interest in the City of Clewiston.
