KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- On Thursday, the City of Knoxville released its 2017 Year in Review report, covering a wide range of development milestones, projects and various accomplishments that happened last year.

In 2017, employees of the city completed hundreds of projects, from patching potholes to building greenways, along with community projects like festivals, concerts and various social events.

Last year also saw victories for the city, including Knoxville Area Transit being recognized as the number one smaller-city transit service in North America.

At the end of every year, Knoxville Mayor Madeline Rogero asks city department directors to compile the report, which details major accomplishments from throughout the year.

In this year's letter, Mayor Rogero cited "some pretty impressive statistics," saying she was "amazed and grateful for the sheer volume of services our employees and contractors provide week in and week out."
