VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) -

2008 was a successful year for the city of Valdosta.  So, what's next for 2009?  On Thursday evening at 5:30, Mayor John Fretti will give his annual State of the City address at City Hall.

The public is welcome to attend and hear the Mayor's initiatives for improving the city in 2009. Mayor Fretti uses feedback from Valdosta's citizens in choosing his initiatives.

The city is making sure the speech is accessible to every citizen.

"The city of Valdosta wants to provide an opportunity for all citizens to come out and hear the Mayor's State of the City Address, so the provide interpreting services for the deaf and hard of hearing citizens of our community," says Public Information Officer Sementha Mathews.  "There will be somebody from Azalea City Interpreting who will be doing that translating for the mayor."

For those who can't attend, Mayor Fretti's speech will also be made available on the city's website, and the Valdosta's government access channel, Channel 17.
