Veazey Takes New Role in Mayor's Office
A shake-up at Memphis City Hall finds a familiar name moving up the ranks in Memphis Mayor Jim Strickland's adminstration.
Kyle Veazey joined Strickland's office in 2016. It was a high-profile move from The Commercial Appeal where he'd covered candidate Strickland during the election. Veazey left The CA in 2015 and later joined as the deputy director of communications, working under former WMC anchor Ursula Madden.
Veazey will now serve Strickland as one of two Deputy Chief Operating Officers. A Wednesday statement says Veazey will work with Chief Operating Officer Doug McGowen "to deliver longer-term priority projects, coordinate the city’s role in economic development initiatives, and oversee performance improvement opportunities, among other duties." Veazey is a 2004 graduate of the University of Mississippi.
City-government veteran Chandell Carr will work with McGowen "for day-to-day service delivery, resource allocation, budgeting, and policy development for all of the city’s divisions, among other duties." Carr has a law degree from the University of Memphis and has most recently served as the city's Equity, Diversion & Inclusivity Officer for the Division of Human Resources.
"Chandell and Kyle have been a big part of our work these two-and-a-half years," Strickland said in a statement. "We recognize and reward talent at the city of Memphis, and I'm proud to watch these two leaders grow as they play even greater roles in continuing our progress."
Carr and Veazey will transition into their new roles next week.
The jobs became available as current Deputy COO Patrice Thomas left to become the new Chief Administrative Officer of Shelby County government. Thanks to this and an already vacant position in the COO's office, the moves will not increase the city budget, Strickland said. Continue Reading
In the past, home owners are restricted to some limited options when they are in search of the best alternatives for natural grass to be installed in their San Diego homes. Artificial grass and huge rock garden are the best options you can consider to be installed in your homes and office.
Some year's back just one variety of artificial grass is available which looks unreal. Things are getting better these days, there are quite pretty number of varieties available when it comes to installing artificial lawns with real and natural feel. This is motivating many people in San Diego to use artificial turf instead of real grass.
Artificial turf fields are on their way to Petaluma, CA. Three artificial turf fields are scheduled to be installed at a Petaluma park. Artificial turf fields will also be installed later at two high schools who are following suit.
Parents have expressed their concerns however concerning risk of bacterial infections, heat conduction, the effects of crumb rubber, and increased risk of physical injuries to players.
A high school in Keizer, OR, is beginning to raise money for a new sports field to be installed with synthetic turf. The high school, McNary High School, says if it raises $1 million, they'll be able to get rid of their irregular and inconvenient natural grass field which has patches of dead grass scattered across its face and replace it with synthetic turf, which will save the school district money and increase usability. The school hopes to start converting their current fields to synthetic turf this summer and to have it completed by the next school year.
