I would like to thank Gary's director of General Services, Cozy Weatherspoon, and his staff for the great job of plowing all the streets, especially all of the hilly streets in Miller.

His pothole patch crew has done a sufficient, never-ending job filling the potholes with cold patch, which pops out soon after, until they can use hot patch.

The police beach patrols on ATVs did an exceptional job last summer putting a stop to rowdiness. The beach police can be great ambassadors for our city. They have direct contact with thousands of people who visit our beautiful beach every summer.

I'd also like to thank Gary City Court Judge Diedra Monroe and Porter County PACT for sending me people who need community service hours to complete. I use them to pick up trash along roadways, cleaning the beach, weeds and trash along Lake Street and the South Shore.

Thanks for a job well done. Cooperation breeds respect.

- Michael Chirich, Gary
