Every Penny Makes a Difference

Posted on: January 14th, 2024 by Susan

Somewhere in our community, children are hungry. Dad lost his job . . . or is absent. Mom is working two jobs with a toddler and a new baby, or can’t work because paying the babysitter costs more than she makes.

Please consider a generous donation to help those in our community who lack the basic necessities many of us enjoy without thinking about it.

Our Food Shelf now has an online donations link. Check it out!

Snow Alerts

Posted on: November 28th, 2023 by Susan

It is unlawful to shovel or blow snow from your lot onto city streets.

During a snow alert (2 inches of snow or more) please move vehicles off of the street so that the public works department can get the streets cleaned and to ensure that no damage to your vehicle occurs.

It is the responsibility of residents that have fire hydrants on their property to keep the snow removed around them.

The City has verbal agreements with individual residents and/or business owners to stockpile snow on their properties until it can be removed. If you own property that snow has been piled on, and a City representative has not spoken to you about stockpiling, then the snow piles in question have been put there by someone else.
