State of the City Slated; Mayor’s Conference Held Opportunities for Huntington
“I’m proud of what we are doing together,” Williams said, adding that in the future “cities will be looking to us for (technological, infrastructure and safety) innovations.”
Following the council meeting, Williams said, “Innovation is the key to success, whether it be the arts, law enforcement or technology. A lot of things we are now doing are leading the way of doing things throughout the country.”
Williams referred to inquiries concerning Huntington’s emergency software application and the home grown food project (the latter exemplified by The Wild Ramp), in the future, “I could be having conversations with cities in the millions of people and tell them we are doing some things in having their staff contact ours.”
270 Mayor’s attended the conference which included a visit with the President, Vice President and the Cabinet.
