A Message from Mayor Eric J. Kellogg:

I want to take a moment to thank the great residents of the City of Harvey for allowing and entrusting me to serve as your Mayor. I am truly honored and thankful for this opportunity. I have lived in Harvey all my life. I love this City and I am dedicated to returning Harvey to the greatness that it once was. There is indeed A New Harvey Rising!

As I begin my second term in office as Mayor of the great City of Harvey, I am amazed at how fast time has flown by. While becoming acquainted with the auspicious task of providing good government for our residents, I have attempted to waste no time in putting forth initiatives that would positively impact Harvey.

I am very proud of the administration that I have put together. I hired a team of professional department heads to effectively implement policy, procedures, measures and initiatives to improve the quality of life for the citizens of Harvey, as well as upgrade the professionalism and productivity in each department.

Our administration has implemented numerous progressive and necessary policies, initiatives, and programs.
• We have instituted a massive bi-monthly clean-up campaign of our City that includes residents, business owners and City employees. The campaign has not only shown to be successful, but many developers are showing interest due to our efforts to clean our City.
• We returned the Fourth of July Parade to the City of Harvey. I would just like to thank all of the thousands of people who participated in this wonderful event. The parade, followed by the citywide picnic and fireworks display, was an enormous success. We look forward to this year's celebration.
• We created the Mayor’s Intelligence Agency (M.I.A.), which provides a great wealth of information to our police department, as it relates to drugs and gangs.
• The Chaplain Program has taken off and has been of great assistance to the City and the residents of Harvey.
• We have posted signs on homes that have been raided for drugs. These signs send a clear message to dealers and drug consumers that their activities will no longer be tolerated.
• As a result of our crime initiatives, crime appears to be declining. This is a reflection of outstanding teamwork between the police and our citizens.
• We have sponsored a 2nd Chance Program, which provides an opportunity for ex-offenders to gain employment with local businesses.
• We settled the Police, Fire and AFCSME contract disputes.
• We drastically increased the Police manpower and presence in our community.
• We sponsored economic development initiatives that focus on business retention, recruitment and enhancement.

Although we have been very successful during our first term, we have faced some serious challenges.  The City Council and I were faced with many obstacles during the budget process. Faced with a massive deficit due to the enormous over expenditures by the previous administration, we were forced to cut nearly 2 million dollars from the general fund. This action was necessary to get the City operating in a financially responsible manner. All city services and departments will feel the effects of this budget cut. Unfortunately, no new motor fuel-related initiatives could be introduced this year. We were forced to use this year's funding to fulfill the outstanding obligations from the previous administration.

The much-publicized stalled firefighter and police contract negotiations of the prior administration have taken a toll on the current administration's budget as well. I was dedicated to quickly resolving these contract disputes in order to enable both departments to focus on their duties at hand.

The overrun of capital spending from the past administration is an issue that the City Council and I were forced to address. Although the limited funding makes our job more difficult, I know that our City employees will put forth extra effort where money is no longer available. We have begun implementing strict managing guidelines and controls across all departments in line with the new budget. Fiscal responsibility is essential to the future redevelopment of our City.

In terms of redevelopment of Harvey, the City Council and I have worked extremely hard in the procurement of some outstanding projects, which have brought in some much-needed economic development to the community. I am proud to announce that over the last four years the City has received over $100 million in new economic development.

We have been able to shut down multiple illegal dumping operations that were allowed to take place throughout Harvey over the last eight years.The Illinois Attorney General and the Office of the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has assisted us with investigating this activity and with the enormous clean up of these sites. Due to our timely discoveries and collaborative efforts, the residents of Harvey will be spared the high clean up cost of these sites.

We certainly have been extremely busy over the past four years. However, it is the citizens of Harvey and the outstanding employees that have made the difference. There now is a consistent sun shining over Harvey. It is affectionately known as the "The New Harvey Rising." Please continue to support our great City. Pride in Harvey is back and ever flowing. Get involved. Thank you for your continued support.

Eric J. Kellogg
Mayor

Mayor Kellogg ducks one from a Harvey youth boxer

Youth sports is alive and well in Harvey. A core social, educational and growth component for years, organizations like the Harvey Boxing Club, the little league baseball teams and the pee-wee football teams keep the Harvey's children active and competitive on a national level.

Restoration Ministries' Harvey Boxing Club

With more than 50 boys and girls participating in the club, this organization thrives on building esteem for youngsters and building confidence. "Better to sweat in the gym, than bleed in the streets" is the motto of the club, opened in 2002 as a part of gang prevention and youth development programs.

Practices are Monday through Saturday, and include extensive conditioning and cardiovascular training. Kids run three miles, as well as 100-yard and 50-yard sprints.
