Groveport Annual Report
Mayor Lance Westcamp's 2012 Annual Report
Introduction to Annual Report
As Mayor of the City of Groveport, I am pleased to once again provide you with the 2012 Groveport Annual Report.
2012 was the first full year with our new team in place. The coordination between City Council, Administration and me was excellent this past year. Thanks to Jan Stoots, Council President Pro-Tem, for her leadership role with the City Council and to the Administration for their unified team approach.
A municipal organization is only as good as those willing to give of themselves. I appreciate the following residents, property owners and City representatives who stepped up in 2012 to assist us:
w Planning and Zoning Commission – Bruce Boyer, Brent Fridley and Patrick Pickett (Lance Westcamp and Jean Ann Hilbert)
w Board of Zoning Appeals – Wanda Carey, Dave Gale, John Goodyear, Tyler Green and Bruce Smith
w Trees and Decorations Committee – Linda Crowder, John Goodyear, Leah Keller, Bruce Smith and Bill Stoots (Donna Drury)
w Apple Butter Day Committee – Carla Cramer, Joanne Casserly and Elizabeth Safier (Ed Dildine, Jan Stoots and Patty Storts)
wPersonnel Board of Review – Scott Clinger, Sheilah Flad and Jack Rupp
Groveport is home to many wonderful annual happenings. The 2012 version of the Apple Butter Day Festival was one of the festival’s best. The committee made up of representatives of the Groveport Heritage Society and of the City spent countless hours planning for this year’s event.
Our 4th of July Celebration had to be altered at the last minute due to the fierce storms and extreme heat that rolled through Central Ohio beginning on June 29. The celebration went off although we were still having power issues throughout the day. Some of the activities that had to be cancelled on the 4th were moved to the September Car Show sponsored by the Southeastern Franklin County Chamber of Commerce. This year’s 4th of July Celebration was planned by a large group of volunteers headed by Bob Garvin. A special congratulations goes to the 2012 Parade Grand Marshall, Marion Gray, a local Knight of the Legion of Honor recipient.
A sincere thank you also to Warren Motts and the Motts Military Museum for planning and hosting our annual Veterans Day salute. We salute you, Warren.
I am proud to call Groveport my home, and look forward to continuing to serve you! Let’s work together to maintain Groveport as Central Ohio’s Hometown!
