Happy New Year Troy! As we step into 2024, I am filled with optimism for the fresh starts and opportunities that lie ahead. This new year symbolizes a time of renewal, providing us with the chance to establish new objectives and strengthen the bonds within our community.
It was a pleasure to see so many familiar faces at our recent Christmas Fest at the park. The shared sense of community and joy was uplifting. I hope we maintain this positive spirit throughout the year, and I look forward to the next Christmas fest!
Looking ahead, 2024 promises to be an exciting year for Troy, with several key projects on the horizon. We will begin the Child Pedestrian Safety route on Big Meadow Road towards Mid-Spring, a project aimed at enhancing the safety and well-being of our youngest residents. Our RV campground will hopefully undergo some rejuvenating improvements, ensuring a more enjoyable experience for visitors and locals alike. Last but not least, significant upgrades are planned for our wastewater system, an important step toward maintaining our city's infrastructure and environmental health.
We will provide more specifics on these projects as their start dates near. Your understanding, cooperation, and support will be instrumental in the successful realization of these initiatives.
In line with this, I want to share a thought that guides my outlook for the year: Pointing out problems without offering solutions is like navigating a ship without a destination. As we confront the challenges and opportunities of 2024, let us be active navigators, not just passengers.
Our collective aim is to transform our challenges into opportunities that lead us toward a brighter, more prosperous future.I encourage each of us to embrace an open-minded attitude, valuing ideas that not only address immediate concerns but also lay the groundwork for progress and the long-term welfare of our community. By adopting a forward-thinking approach, not only can we resolve today's issues, but we can chart a course for a thriving Troy for future generations.
I also want to remind everyone about the importance of safe driving during the winter months. We must guide our young drivers to exercise caution, especially on icy roads to ensure the safety of all. Winter conditions can be tricky, so it is important for inexperienced drivers to be vigilant and cautious.
Additionally, please remember that overnight parking on Main Street is prohibited and off-street parking is limited to 72 hours. (Troy Code 8-7-10 & 8-7-25)
Finally, I would like to express my gratitude to the City Council members for their dedication and service. Working together, we aim to make 2024 a year of growth and achievement for Troy. Your participation in council meetings is highly valued and contributes significantly to our city's progress. Let's make 2024 a year to remember, filled with prosperity, joy, and a strong sense of community. As always, I am proud to be your Mayor and excited to see what we will accomplish together. Here's to a fantastic year ahead!

We appreciate our maintenance crew for their hard work in ensuring our streets remain safe. With more snow expected soon, further plowing will be necessary. We want to remind all residents that when a snowfall of 4 inches or more is predicted, it's essential for property owners to remove their vehicles from the streets and rights-of-way. This is important for allowing city plow operators to clear the snow efficiently. We understand that space constraints vary across areas, so we would like to ask those with available space to help in this effort. Thank you in advance for your cooperation. Please stay safe on the roads!
We would like to thank our neighbors and numerous community members for their generous help following Carol Shrewsberry’s surgery. Your efforts shoveling snow and ensuring our driveway remained clear were very appreciated. We are also deeply grateful to everyone who provided meals during this time. Living in such a supportive and caring community is a huge blessing! - Jeff and Carol Shrewsberry
Winter is just around the corner. Please remember to remove trailers, parked cars and other items from the side of the streets to allow for plowing once the snow arrives. Temporary winter parking is available at the back parking lot at the city park FREE of charge. PERMIT REQUIRED. For more info on how to obtain a permit, please contact City Hall (208) 835-2741.
