Mayor Sarno stated, “This is not only about ‘The big picture’ of being prepared, but just as important and as ‘The Doobie Brothers’ sing – ‘Taking it to the streets’ by communicating, listening and partnering with the resident mosaic of our diverse Springfield. I am very much appreciative and thankful to all the members of this committee.”
