Mayor’s Minutes: Crystal’s Jim Adams
Crystal Mayor Jim Adams stopped by CCX Media to talk with Dave Kiser recently, and he reminded residents about nominations for the city’s third annual Neighbors Recognizing Neighbors program. Nominations will be accepted at city hall and online until February 23 for anyone who wants to honor someone in the city for their actions. The recipients will be honored at the April 16 city council meeting.
“We are moving forward (to stop the leak),” said Adams. “We’re going to re-work the pool. We haven’t got bids yet, so we’re not positive what our scope is, but we hope to add some new features to the pool, and do some improvements.”
The pool is scheduled to re-open in time for the 2025 summer season.
Adams also told Kiser about opportunities for residents to apply for various commissions and boards with the city, including openings on the Parks and Recreation Board, Inclusion and Diversity Commission, the Charter Commission, and the Crime Prevention Board. He said the city’s Environmental Quality Commission is currently temporarily suspended, but if you’re interested in applying, you still can.
“When it’s back up and running, we’ll have your name,” he said.
Applications for all commissions and boards are due to the city by February 29.
Adams also reminded residents that they can attend the next public meeting about Metro Transit’s planned Blue Line extension. That meeting is at the Crystal Community Center on March 7 from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m.
“You can comment on any part of the line,” Adams said. “Specifically, we’re going to be focusing on the Crystal area. Positive, negative–anything you want to say about (the plans).”
