As Mayor, I am continuously proud of the commitment our local leadership
and citizens keep while moving  forward in tough economic times. As a
result, our city is seeing some really positive improvements.
Our Midtown area has seen growth recently and is continuing. Our historic
downtown area is seeing some movement with proposals on the available
downtown properties being reviewed by the Harriman Industrial
Development Board. Details are now being ironed out that will bring
additional businesses to our city.
Chris Mason
Mayor, City of Harriman
