Thoughts from Jerald Gilbert, City Manager Well, it is hard to believe that it is already time to say Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and a Happy New Year. What a great year we have had here in Enid. The past twelve months has been a year of many accomplishments. So, as we celebrate this holiday season, I hope we will continue to spend time with family and friends. Let us use this time to reflect and count our blessings. The greatest gift we could exchange this season is to serve one another. May I ask you to remember your neighbors at this time of year, especially the elderly and those who live alone. From my family and our family of City Council and your dedicated city staff, we wish you the best this holiday season. I look forward with anticipation of sharing another great year with you in 2017. –Jerald Gilbert
