City releases 2013 Year in Review

The City of Springfield has completed a Year in Review report that highlights initiatives, projects, programs and events that defined Springfield in 2013.

Mayor Bob Stephens says in his opening message of the report, “One of the qualities that makes Springfield strong is our ability to collaborate … We owe much of what we accomplished in 2013 to collaboration."

City Manager Greg Burris says, "The successes chronicled in this Year in Review publication highlight only some of the hard work accomplished by the City of Springfield in 2013."

In addition to financial information, the Year in Review includes articles and photo features that highlight each of the City's service areas. QR codes linking to videos and pdfs offer readers more in-depth information about those services.
