Water Treatment Information
During treatment chlorination levels are kept far below what most municipalities generally treat their water. Our water is treated at or under 0.09 parts chlorine per million parts water (or 9 parts chlorine per 100 million parts water). Most water systems requiring chlorination treat between 1.00 and 2.00 parts per million. We are grateful for your patience and regret any inconvenience this might cause.
The city plows have been having mechanical issues.
We appreciate those citizens who have called to get updates and are being patient.
The city is planning to haul the piles of snow out of town as soon as possible.
Spring and Summer Updates
Due to miss-use of the cities debris bins, they will no longer be available to the public for the entire summer.
The city will set specific dates for the public to use the bins. Watch for Notices in the public facilities.
We will try to correlate with the Annual Spring Clean-up and two weeks in the Fall.
Spring Clean-up 2018 is set for April 30-May 17th. (We coordinate with the county during their free dump days)
Residents are responsible to dispose of their own debris outside of the official Spring Clean-Up and the 2 weeks in the fall.
Please do not stack your debris in the alleyways.
The City will Fine residents who choose to violate the city codes.
A maximum of 10 tires per household can be stacked neatly beside the City Shop at 114 E. Center St.
