Message From the Mayor

We could not have the great community we enjoy without the active participation from our volunteers. Volunteers are essential to the success of the City of Grants Pass and we count on them to help guide our City. We have always been sustained and strengthened by the willingness of our residents to work for the common good and plan for the future. The hours and input our volunteers have given are greatly appreciated.

I wish to recognize our volunteers and honor the service they have provided to our community, by hosting the 5th Annual Mayor's Volunteer dinner June 27, 2019. I will be acknowledging the selfless commitment and efforts of those who volunteer on City committees, commissions, boards and task forces. I will also be presenting a Volunteer of the Year Award, Volunteer Group of the Year Award and the Mayor's Future Citizen of the Year Scholarship Award.
