It is hard to believe that school has started. This has been a fun and eventful summer for Twinsburg. The weather has been hot and dry, which has benefited our outdoor concerts and attendance at the waterpark.
The City has maintained a 10% increase in income tax revenue over 2015. We anticipate continued improvement in tax revenue as the new Cornerstone businesses become operational. Budget meetings continue for 2017. I have received all the capital requests from my Department Heads, and early this month, we will be working on the City's operational budget.
Another positive note: The City-owned golf course, Gleneagles, is experiencing a 28% increase in revenue from last year. The course improvements have led to an increase in rounds and through the month of June, the revenue from the new practice facility was up 135%. The City continues to research financing options for a new clubhouse and banquet facility, as well as the projected revenue from the proposed clubhouse operations.
The weather has cooperated with the many construction and road projects that are underway. The City is resurfacing 26 residential roads and cul-de-sacs throughout this summer and fall. The Route 91 project is on schedule, and construction updates and road closures will be posted on the City's website. I appreciate your patience through all our temporary road closures.
Please contact my office should you have any questions about events or projects happening in the City.
