City Council Meetings

Regular City Council meetings are at 5:30 p.m. on the first and third Tuesdays of each month in city hall at 306 Pearl Streets. Join us just once. You never know, you might enjoy it!

Next Mini-Retreat

The City Council continues to meet when there are five Tuesdays in a month for "mini-retreats" in the Council Chambers. The next one will be October 29, starting at 5:00 p.m. These mini-retreats allow Council to dive a little deeper into topics that need more time than a regular Council meeting to discuss. These meetings hope to address opportunities and challenges more timely than to wait until the annual retreat. The annual 2-day retreats still occur in late winter. This is when Council goals for the next year are discussed; it's time for a little "bigger picture" discussion. The public is always welcome at all of these meetings.

Christmas Lights Recycling

In the next couple of months, you will undoubtedly become frustrated with those Christmas lights that don't work or worse yet, intermittently work. Remember the City encourages you to recycle those strands. Please bring these old lights to the Recycling and Trash Center. 

Service Line Warranty Program

At the last Council meeting a presentation was made by a representative from Utility Service Partners (USP) about a service line warranty program offered to municipalities. The Council will consider whether to allow this program at a later meeting. The program would allow City residents using City water and/or sewer to pay a monthly fee for warranty programs: 1) water (service) lines from the City main to the house/building; 2) sanitary sewer (service) lines from the City main to the house/building; and, 3) internal plumbing in the house/building. These are three separate programs. If the Council approves, this only allows USP to market their program to the City utility customers. This in no way is required of customers. If Council approves much more information will be forthcoming.
