Presidents’ Day – 02/19/18

**City Hall will be closed on Monday, February 19 in observance of Presidents’ Day. Garbage that is normally collected on Monday will be collected on Tuesday (02/20).

**Urgent Request to City Residents**

With the freezing rain in January and the recent snowfall, numerous trees and bushes from private property are bending and breaking onto sidewalks and streets.  The City hired temporary workers and contractors starting back in January to address these safety concerns, but with the ever increasing volume of downed trees and branches, city workers and contractors cannot keep up with the demand.  Residents are urgently requested to cut back, cut down  and even cut up fallen trees and branches this weekend. With all the additional snowfall, city resources must now be redirected to snow plowing and snow removal. Any help during this winter weather event is greatly needed and appreciated. This is a time when we all need to work together  to keep our community and streets safe.
