MESSAGE FROM THE CITY MANAGER
Welcome to the December edition of Your City @ Work
Happy Holidays! This is a special time of year in Dunedin. Many of our friends from the frozen north are back for the winter and there is something fun happening somewhere just about all the time. From installing Christmas decorations to road closures for parades and other festivities our employees are working hard to make sure you and your families have a joyful and safe holiday season. As you can see from this month’s newsletter we’ve been plenty busy with all the other tasks necessary to move the City forward. On behalf of the staff of the City of Dunedin I want to wish all of you the warmest holiday greetings. 

We hope to see you and yours out celebrating this holiday season!
