1012 Gary Ivey
I am extremely proud to be your Mayor and to live in a great city that I am happy to call home. We have had a very tough winter but hopefully warmer weather and springtime will soon arrive. We have many exciting events on the horizon for you.
I want to take this opportunity to commend our first responders and entire staff that worked tirelessly during the ice storm. We are so fortunate to live in a city with top city services.
This is the one-year anniversary of the art gallery in the lobby of the Hoover Municipal Complex. Gallery Director Pat Bendall has worked diligently to bring some of the best artists in town to our gallery, and 2014 promises to be another year of top talent. Be sure to drop by and see for yourself.
Many people like to do spring cleaning, so it’s a great time to clean out your garage and get rid of old paint, chemicals or anything else you don’t want hanging around your garage or house. Our annual Household Hazardous Waste Day will be held at the Hoover Met in April. You will have to show your driver’s license to prove you are a Hoover resident prior to dropping off items. We will be collecting paint, prescription medications, fireworks and electronics; we also will be properly disposing of flags. Please visit our website for a complete list of items.
One of our biggest events of the year, “Celebrate Hoover Day” will be held on Saturday, May 3 from 10 a.m.-2 p.m., so be sure and save the date. This family fun day is free and held at Veterans Park on Valleydale Road with plenty of parking. More details about the event will be in the April issue of the Mayor’s Minute or you can visit our new and improved website at hooveralabama.gov or call 444-7500.
We want to exceed your expectations in every way with the quality of services we offer. Please contact our office if we can be of assistance to you.
