A Message From Mayor Daniel Fritz
As the year winds down, I would like to reflect on my first year as your Mayor. I can relate that it has been an incredibly rewarding experience that has been laced with some difficult challenges. My guess is that each one of you can say the same thing regarding 2020 as it relates to your job, family and general life experiences. I’ve often heard that through difficult times, beautiful things can appear. It is during these challenging times that we see the good in people, the beauty in our parks and the hope amongst our fellow residents.
At the start of 2020 my staff and I shared many goals for improvements and increased levels of service. Those aspirations were quickly hampered as the pandemic took hold in the first quarter of the year. As I have related, the pandemic quickly forced us to not only taper our ambitions, but to also prepare for a significant financial downturn. To that end, we worked with Village Council and reduced our budget by over $650,000. These cuts were not easy and resulted in some cancelled road improvements, capital acquisitions and several beautification projects. These cuts were difficult but they were also necessary. Our finances are sound and we continue to plan for various economic scenarios headed into 2021. I pledge to continue working with our Treasurer, Department Heads and members of your Village Council to ensure that we are utilizing conservative financial practices. Our goal is to maintain our unencumbered funds and to protect our “rainy day” reserves to the greatest extent possible.
In the face of financial constraints, we still managed to improve several areas within our beautiful parks. When resident Tom Shaper contacted my office and suggested we implement an “Honorary Tree Planting” program we came up with a game plan. Tom’s suggestion was to mark this moment in history by planting trees in a visible area of Forest Ridge Preserve. The most important component of Tom’s plan was to invite residents to do the planting. We welcomed volunteers from all areas of our Village. Included in this effort was resident Alan Kleinman, a WW2 veteran who proudly served in Patton’s tank division. Relatively speaking, this effort was not expensive. The area will now stand in tribute to this moment in history when Moreland Hills’ residents took pause and worked together to bring beauty into the heart of our wonderful Village.
