I became Mayor of
Shively near the end of 2004. I have been elected twice since that 2004
appointment and I can only hope I have instilled confidence to the
citizens that I want and can lead the City proficiently. I served on
the City Council for 10 years before I was appointed Mayor. I have a
deep commitment to the City and have enjoyed serving the citizens for
nearly 17 years now.
I still have a vision
for clear communication between the citizens, the mayor and the
council. I want citizens to be treated with respect and to feel safe in
their homes and businesses. I still want the City to excel in all
Having said that, I hope
citizens and business owners will feel free to contact me or the city
council members if they have any type of problem or concerns. We won’t
be able to make everyone happy all the time, but we can certainly listen
and possibly learn from the experience.
We have both
professional Fire and Police Departments that are second to none. They
work hard to help anyone needing assistance. They are better equipped
and better trained than any Fire and Police the City of Shively has ever
had in the past.
Our Works Department
collects trash, yard waste, recycling, completes drainage work, keeps
our parks mowed and they remove appliances once a month. But most of
all they make sure your streets are safe and clear of ice and snow
We have made changes to
the City Hall side of our web page in order to be more user friendly for
citizens and businesses. You can now look at all of the forms on line
that are used by City Hall and print them for usage.
We have made a lot of
upgrades to your park system since 2004. The larger park now has three
pavilions, the tennis courts have been resurfaced, new playground
equipment in place, installed a walking path and most recently a new
regulation size basketball court has been built. In our smaller park,
Leeds Park, we have installed new playground equipment, resurfaced the
tennis courts and a walking path is soon to be installed.
I want to invite all
Shively citizens to attend your City Council meetings. You don’t have to
have a concern to attend just come out and see what is happening in your
city. The meetings are the first three Mondays of the month (unless a
holiday is involved) and each meeting begins at 7:00pm. They are held
at City Hall, 3920 Dixie Highway. The minutes are posted on the web
page as soon as they are approved by the council
I hope you will find the
City’s web page helpful and informative. Please visit it often to stay
informed with what is happening in your City.
Mayor Sherry Sinegra
