On Saturday, June 8 at 2:30 p.m., in the downstairs research center, the Colton Area Museum’s (CAM) guest speaker program will feature Bill Smith, City Manager of the City of Colton and former Director of Community Services Department.
Well-known for his long tenure as a city employee, Smith brings a wealth of experience, insight, and comprehensive knowledge of the City of Colton; including policies, staffing, programs and finances.
“If you have a question about the City of Colton, this would be a great time ask it,” smiles Dr. G, Colton City Council member, and Secretary of the CAM Board of Directors.
Smith will offer snapshots of significant municipal milestones with regard to the City of Colton, and share his thoughts on current policies, facilities, departments, and challenges facing the city. An overview of the newly adopted budget, and new development projects will certainly be included, and pique the interest of those in attendance.
In addition to his city employment, Smith has also taken the time to meet regularly with council members, attend city functions, and talk with developers, business owners and residents. “He brings good communication and thoughtfulness to our city,” boasts Dr. G.
