What does a Mayor do?

Being the Mayor is sort of like being the Principal of the city. It is my responsibility to work with the City Council, the City Administrator and our city staff to make Grand Forks run well. I work with them to build a strong community. We make Grand Forks safe with trained fire fighters and police officers that protect us. The City of Grand Forks builds bridges, buildings and streets and our sanitation department makes sure it a clean place to live. We provide city utilities to make sure there is running water, trash pickup and recycling. We offer a great place to play in the new Greenway that includes bike paths, sledding hills and parks the whole family can enjoy. Together, we work with the residents, the businesses and the visitors to our great City to make sure all of these things are done to keep Grand Forks a great place to live, work and play.
