For 71 years, our community has been privileged to have a volunteer fire department. This tradition will come to an end at the end of 2017. To honor our past and current firefighters, the City is hosting a Fireman’s Ball on Sat., Nov. 4.  Everyone is invited. The event kicks off at 6:30 p.m. with drinks and a buffet dinner (the cost is $27/pp). Firefighters and their significant others will be guests of the City. Please RSVP by October 25 via email to If you cannot attend dinner, you are encouraged to join us on the patio at 8:00 for a recognition ceremony, fireworks and an epic party with a live band and cash bar.

Next, I need to ask for your assistance on a few issues. First, PLEASE respect our very liberal dog ordinance by picking up waste--the problem is most evident on Lakeshore and the soccer fields--and do not let your dogs run wild.  Second, while I am inspired by the use of the recycle dumpsters, PLEASE put yard waste only in the yard waste dumpster--no plastic bags, lawn chairs, boxes, construction waste. Gary Anderson, Leanna Walters, Bruce Braun, myself and likely others have had the unpleasant task of fishing out these items.  Also, please break down cardboard boxes to allow more room in the recycle materials dumpster. Styrofoam cannot be recycled. 

Remember: Large item pickup is November 4. The next Council meeting is November 6 at 6:30. 

I look forward to seeing everyone at the Fireman’s Ball!
