ST. GEORGE — Mayor Jon Pike will share highlights of a “banner year” during his “State of the City” address at the St. George Chamber of Commerce luncheon Wednesday in the Gardner Center Ballroom on the Dixie State University campus.

Pike will highlight pivotal 2016 accomplishments and lay out the city’s vision for 2017 and beyond.
