I want to thank the many citizens who participated in the recent Citizen Survey. The number of responses was nearly doubled the responses from last year. Staff is currently compiling the information into a useable document that will assist the City Council with the 2016-2017 budget process, which will begin soon. Once the document is complete, it will be posted on the City's website for you to review. The information will showcase previous years' results as well so you can compare how the different services and programs have performed based on input provided.

In the coming months, there will be plenty of activities and events hosted by the City that take advantage of the great Florida weather. First up, on April 10th, is the No Dough VW Bus Show at City Center. If you love cars, this collection of custom cars draws a great crowd. For those who enjoy music and art, the annual the Lakeside Jazz Festival and the Port Orange ArtFest should be on your calendar. Scheduled for the third weekend in April, these two cultural events showcase great musicians and great artists. New to the schedule of events is the Earth Day Celebration at City Center on April 30. Fun, environmental activities are planned during the celebration along with the City's annual Arbor Day Ceremony. April is also the month for history with the annual Founder's Day Ceremony on April 26. On that date, the community of Port Orange was established in 1867. One last event that I want to remind you about is the Memorial Day ceremony set for May 30 at Veterans Park across the lake from City Hall. You can find the start times for these and other events in the calendar section of this newsletter.
Finally, qualifying for City elections will begin in June. The date for the Primary Election is August 30, 2016. I encourage you to get informed on the different candidates as well as the different issues.
