What's New?

November 6, 2003

Happy Fall, Y’all
………………Can you believe it’s this late in the year already? Before you know it, the city crew will be pushing snow; I know you didn’t want to hear that! By the way, did you know it is against city code to push snow from your property onto the city street? Just put it in your yard, the grass needs it after this dry year. Also, remember that no vehicles should be parked on the streets during snow removal.

TH. Alternate date is November 22nd. Cleanup is in the city maintenance yard from 7:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. This is a great benefit offered by the city and Waste Management to get rid of leaves, yard waste and all that stuff taking up space in your home or yard. Thanks in advance for taking advantage of the event. The hazardous waste collection this last month was also a great success. This will most likely be an annual happening.

JOE TAYLOR WILL BE PERFORMING at the Senior Center, November 12 at 1:00 p.m. Joe will be putting on a really great Christmas Show. Everyone is welcome to eat before the show; if you plan to, please call Pat Schliefert by November 6 at 234-2120 to make reservations. The Seniors would also like to invite anyone and everyone to their Covered Dish Dinners the first Monday of the month at noon and Biscuits & Gravy the last Saturday of the month from 7 a.m.  10 a.m. You can’t beat the price!!

Don’t forget that the Senior Center is available to rent for parties and gatherings. Just call the city office for prices and availability.

The city council has changed some utility payment policies. They are going to implement a nonrefundable account set up fee of $150.00, change the reconnection fee from $25 to $50, and no longer accept partial payments. The council and crew are going to become more aggressive with users who continually have delinquent bills. Water rates per gallon are staying the same; however, the service charge will be raised from $14.25 to $16.00. The ordinance reflecting these changes will be published and posted as required after the next council meeting.

Here’s a gentle reminder: The city now has a humane officer, so to avoid violations and fines, keep your dogs and cats confined to your own property and keep the noise to a minimum. If a resident chooses to be animal-free, they shouldn’t have to clean up after other’s pets or listen to them endlessly. Let’s be considerate of our neighbors.

The Mayor, city council, and city employees would like to invite all residents to attend a Holiday Open House to be held Friday, December 12, 2003 at City Hall. Cookies, coffee and punch will be served from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. The High School Christmas Jazz Combo will perform at 12:15.

The City Hall will be closed on the following dates during the holidays:

November 27 & 28, 2003
December 24 & 25, 2003
December 31, 2003 & January 1, 2004


United Methodist Church Homecoming
Editorial: Pastor Paul Blanchard
Your News: The United Methodist Church had its first service last Sunday, with the theme of 'Homecoming'.

Dave Pankonin, Lay Leader, made special presentations to:

- Troy Nissen, the engineer who decided 'it could be done' after the first engineer told us to tear it down and rebuild. He designed a roof that could last.

- Jim & Barnita Williams, the lead contractors who got the project completed and whose hard work and personal investment of time and energy saved the church at least $150,000.

- Bill Nessen, the chairman of the building committee, whose experience, knowledge, patience, and wisdom led the group through a long and complicated decision making process.

- Trudy Sutton, Chair of the Administrative Council, made a special presentation to Lori Pankonin for her tireless efforts as Chair of the church Trustees to help see this project through.

The bulletin thanked all of those who have contributed in different ways to have made the day possible. Their names may not have been mentioned, but God knows who they are.

Amanda Stander and Jennifer Cover sang an offertory composed by Tom Bishop for the occasion and accompanied by Tom on guitar.

The worship band led the praise music for the service, but Donna Albert also provided prelude, postlude, and communion music on organ. And the worship team and organ played together on two numbers, a first for the church.

The church was packed, with no empty seats. The spirit of unity and joy were demonstrably present, as the church is beautifully done.
Most joined in the church basement afterward for refreshments.

It was a wonderful return after 18 months of meeting on Sundays at the Senior Center, and the United Methodists are very grateful to the City and to the Senior Center board for allowing the church to use the facility for worship all of those many Sundays.

The Sunday morning schedule through the rest of the year is:
9:00 Traditional worship
9:00 Sunday School classes for children and adults
10:15 Contemporary worship
The church will have an open house in early December.
