The Mason City Council presented a new city mission statement at its meeting Monday. Mayor Leon Clark said the mission statement was run by the council through a number of programs held in January. Clark said the council developed the mission statement by weighing the strengths and weaknesses of the city and positively collaborating with all council members. “Developing the mission statement allowed the council to really work together as a team,” Clark said. The new mission statement of Mason reads:
Mason is a community founded upon a respect for our historic past, while encouraging an atmosphere that values family, business, the environment and arts, creating a sense of place for present and future generations.
