From the Chief

Christmas is an annual event commemorating the birth of Jesus Christ, a season that marks the beginning of the church year for many Christians. Leading up to Christmas day is the season called Advent that continues from the Sunday nearest November 30 through to December 25. Coincidentally, December 25 was the date the Romans designated as the winter solstice, the shortest and darkest day of the year, and the first day in which the days would begin to lengthen as the Sun appeared longer in the sky. The celebratory customs associated in various countries with popular modern customs include gift giving, completing an Advent calendar or wreath, Christmas music and caroling, viewing a Nativity play, an exchange of Christmas cards, church services, a special meal, and the display of various Christmas decorations, including Christmas trees and lights. During this season many people display Nativity scenes, garlands, wreaths, mistletoe, and holly. In addition, several figures appear on the scene in names with which we’re familiar; Santa Claus, Father Christmas, or Saint Nicholas. This person is the one many honor since he was the one who gave gifts to children during for Christmas.

Because gift-giving and many other aspects of Christmas are annually observed, many Grinches find their way into the festivities and prey on people’s good will. During this holiday season please remember several steps that you can take to keep the old Grinch from stealing your Christmas.

  • Always ask for and keep all receipts from gift shopping.
  • Check your bank and credit card statements frequently to be sure no one has fraudulently made a purchase.
  • Only give to charities that you know or are well established and reputable.
  • Never leave boxes out for the trash advertising your new items; break them down and place into your trash can.

Worth Quoting

“I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today. I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn’t arrived yet. I have just one day, today and I’m going to be happy in it.”

Groucho Marks


MV Mayor Note

I trust our residents and commercial friends had a wonderful holiday season. There are a few things to share and many goals to achieve as we begin a new year.

Our social committee is at hard at work planning several events for 2018. The first, and one of my favorite events, is volunteer appreciation dinner. If you or someone you know has volunteered their time or efforts on behalf of the City, please contact Cathy Morrow via email at: You are also welcome to contact Pat Teeter at City Hall by calling (502) 412-5500 or emailing Pat at:

I would like to take a moment to recognize our police officers, Chief Yates and Officer Wilder. During the holidays, I received several calls and emails commending the job they have done the past couple of months. Our residents appreciate seeing them around the city and have witnessed some of their actions. In these times, being a police officer can be tough. If you want to show your appreciation or share positive comments about them, send an email or note to the station at City Hall.

Commissioner Sweeney and our police department are pulling together to find ways to insure our officers have the equipment and training they require regarding their safety in addition to ways of improving service to our citizens.

There are two training sessions scheduled for our city commission and officials to assist them in their duties and legal obligations to the city. Participation in the training helps each person in being more effective in carrying out responsibilities.

In looking back, I am pleased to see that we have made many strides the past four years to bring the city into the 21st century. All along the way we have operated on a balanced budget and not drawn from reserve funds set aside for unforeseen expenditures. There have been many challenges to overcome and they have been accomplished. Having said that, I will point out that probably the greatest obstacle is helping people understand we are a city that operates under state statutes and not a homeowner’s association operating under bylaws of such an organization.

One of my objectives for the year is to conduct a town hall meeting later in the year in which the Commissioners and I gather input from you on ways to keep or improve our city making it a wonderful place for living and doing business.

I also want you to be aware that you are always welcome to email me anytime:

Your home will be happy and your city leadership too if you make sure that “City of Meadow Vale” is listed on your household insurance policy. By doing so you’ll be making sure that Meadow Vale receives it’s share of taxes derived from the policy. It costs you nothing extra and, at the same time, benefits the City since the additional funds are funneled to the City from the companies.

Thank You!
