VIDEO: 49th Kalamazoo City Commission Sworn into Office

by

KALAMAZOO (WKZO) -- The 49th Kalamazoo City Commission has been sworn into office at City Hall and boy do they have their work cut out for them.

"Job One" will be next year’s budget, and the bigger job will be restructuring city government to match what is now being called the “new normal” which means working with a lot less revenue and less staff while still meeting the many demands to make sure the snow is plowed, the parks maintained, the streets made secure and as smooth as possible, the water and sewer lines keep flowing and fires put out.  

Commissioners expressed other concerns, like regaining access to the Basswood Preserve and helping improving the quality of life for the poor, the homeless and the unemployed.  

 A reception followed the ceremonial swearing in.
