Building Trust Through Transparency: The New

Today the city's new website,, went live. It's the same web address as before, but with a new modern look and lots of new information. In my job I try to build trust through transparency - with my employees, with my bosses (the City Council) and with the public. The city website helps me do that. We've been working hard to get as much information as we can up on the website, and will continue to do more. Here are some things you can find at

  • Budgets
  • Audits
  • City Council Meeting Agendas and Minutes
  • Bid and Purchasing Information
  • Document Center
  • Map Center
  • Event Information
  • City Calendar
  • Complaint Form
  • Frequently Asked Questions
  • Employment Opportunities
  • Community Links including the Chamber of Commerce, Historic Downtown Sikeston, the Convention and Visitors Bureau, and more.
Additionally, the new website is optimized for mobile technologies like tablets and smartphones, because more people than ever use their mobile devices as their primary means to access the internet. Please check out the new; and I hope you'll find what you are looking for!
