I would like to personally thank the Good Neighbor Garden Club for helping to weed the flowers and trees downtown. They approached the Chamber of Commerce and offered their services and it is greatly appreciated. I received many comments during Corn Capital Days and continue to receive compliments on how lovely our downtown area looks. Many thanks.
The city crews are back to the once-a-month curbside brush pick-up. It is requested that brush not be placed in the street but on the boulevard. Brush in the street is problematic on a number of different levels. The city appreciates homeowners support in this matter.
It is back-to-school next week and we should all be cautious drivers about young people making their way to school mornings and afterschool. I know more children take the bus than back in my days when we had school ranks that children would line up in and a patrol leader would walk home in a variety of directions from school for up to a mile. Even in these days, children are still on streets so please, be aware of school times and activities. It is also a good time to remind drivers about school buses and the extra attention that needs to be given to them.
I hope everyone has a safe, restful and enjoyable Labor Day.
