Mayor's message from the Fall-Winter 2016 Newsletter:
The opportunity to serve the citizens of Hayden continues to motivate myself, the City Council, and the staff of the City of Hayden. Over the past months, we have sent a strong and positive message to businesses, developers and residents. Our City Administrator Brett Boyer is implementing a process so that anyone who has worked on a business development or planning process can provide feedback through a survey. A hard copy of the survey is available, along with a self addressed stamped envelope at the Community and Economic Development Reception Desk or you can visit our website at www.cityofhaydenid.us to fill it out electronically. Once completed, these surveys will be sent directly to Brett for his review. These will help us know how we are doing in serving our customer’s needs and if and how we need to refine our processes. Our code regulations have recently been reviewed and amended so that common sense and partnership can serve as the foundation for Hayden. The Community and Economic Development continue to review and recommend changes to the Council as we refine our code. I want to thank the marvelous people that serve timelessly in committees, commissions, and boards such as the Hayden Urban Renewal Agency, our Veterans Commission, the Historic Preservation Commission, the Arts Commission, Parks, Recreation, and Community Forestry Commission, and Planning and Zoning Commission. I cannot imagine where we would be as a community without the enormous level of service that many of you provide. Thank you for making Hayden such a wonderful place to live. As we enter the holiday season, may we reflect upon the many things we should be thankful for. It is a great time to reach out to neighbors and friends and do something kind for them. May you all have a joyous and festive holiday season.
Mayor Steven J. Griffitts
