welcome to the city of avon

It seems no matter where I am, I hear someone comment on how quickly time is passing.  I certainly feel it, too.  Can it really be possible we are ready to close the books on 2019?  It won’t be long, but before that happens we have an entire holiday season ahead of us.  There will be family get-togethers, friends to visit and school programs, but remember to also take note of all the fun activities mentioned in this newsletter that are being planned in the city for your enjoyment.

I would like to remind you that the holiday season definitely requires extra patience.  There’s a million things to do, everyone is rushing and traffic will be heavier than usual.  We are always working to improve traffic conditions – adding and/or widening lanes, adding and upgrading traffic signalization – and we need your patience and understanding, especially at this time of the year.  Allow yourself a few extra minutes to get to your destination safely.

I believe the theme for the entire holiday season should be one of thankfulness and appreciation.  We need to count our blessings with a thankful heart.  We live in a wonderful area with great schools and many amenities available within minutes.  We all need to stop for a moment to thank those people who have made a difference in our lives.  Make it a point this season to express love and caring to your family and friends and simple appreciation to the people around you who serve you from day to day. 

With all the challenges and achievements, it’s an exciting time in our city.  I am thankful that you have entrusted me with its care and proud to be your Mayor.

I would like to wish everyone health and happiness during these holidays and throughout the year ahead.


Bryan K. Jensen
Mayor, City of Avon
