As I stated during the work session, I am in the process of putting together a travel report for my recent trip to NLC's City Summit. I have a lot I want to share and I'm hoping I'll have it completed and available for you within the next week. As always please contact me at Carolyn.Umphrey@SierraVistaAZ.gov with any comments or questions. I love hearing from you!
