On February 22, 2018, City of Buffalo Mayor Byron W. Brown delivered his “State of the City” address. Several of us from Premier Consulting were honored to be in attendance.
As the City of Buffalo’s self-funded Medical and Prescription consultant, Premier is especially invested in the success of the City, and we were happy to hear Mayor Brown’s optimism that “This is Our Time.”
The Mayor touched on many achievements and initiatives happening in the City. Included were enhanced efficiencies through technology and public-private partnerships, development and job growth, neighborhood recovery, and improved public services and essential services, such as continued firefighter training and a resource center for educational, recreational and vocational programs in the City.
Premier partners with the City of Buffalo on Wellness initiatives, so we were especially interested to hear of “Project Rainfall,” a food system social enterprise at Northland, which will provide fresh produce to the community. Also included in the project are training and employment opportunities for residents, with a focus on health and wellness. The City is also striving toward wellness with reaching the 2018 Bicycle Master Plan goal of installing 150 miles of bike lanes.
Premier is proud of its partnership with the City of Buffalo and excited to be a part of the City’s success.
