From the City Manager - January 2024

Maize Citizens,

I am honored and humbled to serve as your new City Manager.  I started on November 20th and have been excited each day on the job to learn more about Maize and its strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats.  I know I have big shoes to fill from the exodus of City Administrator Richard LaMunyon and Assistant City Administrator Jolene Graham.  However, I look forward to building on the many successes of Maize during my career in Maize.

I come to Maize with 22 years of total experience in local government.  With me I bring some new ideas, new concepts and different experiences; yet I bring great desire to learn more about what the Maize Community needs.  I hope to continue to support the growth and development that Maize has seen over the last several decades.

My priorities for the community will include the following:

  • Focus on Transparency
  • Improving efficiencies in service delivery
  • Delivery of Superior Customer Service
  • Accountability to the Governing Body and to Maize Citizens
  • Integrity in our decision-making and delivery of services - We do what we say and we say what we mean!
  • Fairness and Equity in how we treat our customers and citizens
  • Continued Focus on Smart Growth for one of Kansas' Fastest Growing Communities
  • Focus on Quality of Life - Providing the amenities that Citizens expect

I look forward to serving the Citizens of Maize.  Please know that the whole Maize City Team and I will continue to focus on  being responsive to the needs of the community.  I encourage all citizens to reach out to the city leadership team or me with any issues, challenges or needs.  I can be reached at 316-722-7561 or by email at ngregory@maizeks.gov.  I look forward to hearing from you!
