What are the top issues facing this district/municipality and how would you work to resolve it?

Always looking for ways to increase our tax base. Recently, our Business Park has provided great growth for the City and the immediate area with the creation of jobs and tax base.

What are other key issues facing the district/municipality, and how would you work to resolve them?

Tourism is also an excellent way to promote our City and the Cheese Country Trail going through our City has proved to be very beneficial for our City. Need to find ways to increase tourism on the Pecatonica River as well.
