The year 1959 will long be remembered as one of outstanding achievements in our city. It was a year of firsts, a year of celebration, and a year marked by the sincere hard work of your City Council and its associated boards and agencies.

We celebrated 1959 as our Anniversary Year, our 125th as a chartered city, and a year-long program of superlative events was staged by an energetic and tireless Anniversary Committee of industrious citizens.

"Building a Better and Busier Bangor" was the byword, and your City Council cooperated to the fullest in every respect. After several months of strenuous effort the Council, for the first time in seven years, held the line on the tax rate, and there was no increase, despite an upward adjustment on all City employee wages, and a final budget of $4,752,552.
