What's ahead in Havelock for 2014

With the land and financing secured, the city plans to spend 2014 grading and improving the property to build two soccer fields.

“It will probably be 2015 before we see it as a usable facility, but all the progress will begin, getting the fields ready, turning it into a playable space,” Lewis said. “We’ve got infrastructure to put in as far as electric and plumbing, and those sorts of things, so we’ll be working on getting that done this year.”

Ultimately, the facility will have a lighted ball field, a parking lot, bathroom facilities, a concession stand and other features.


Lewis plans to uphold a promise to spend specified hours at Havelock City Hall to make himself available to residents.

“I will be instituting office hours in the next week or two,” Lewis said. “The city clerk and I are just trying to decide which days are the best for them, the businesses and for me. I’ll have office hours every week so that any citizen who wants can come in and talk to me about any issue and they will be regular hours every week on the same day.”

Lewis said the city staff is working on putting the mayor’s calendar on the city website and would work on creating a calendar for commissioners as well.
