Thanks for all the work you do!

Good choice of days to complete the work!

Although we sound like the little guy that cried, "Wolf," we have been assured the great HEARTLAND BANK LOT RESURFACING will occur Sunday, Oct 13. As you know, that means there will be no through traffic or parking in that lot from Saturday night until the barricades are removed Monday morning.
There will be authorized 2-way traffic at the Lindy's entrance from Peoria St. That means you'll see average folks exiting there, not just that 1 guy who is in a hurry and feels lucky.
The up side is we now have a better amateurish graphic to show you the affected area. All the weather delays are making this seem like the movie Groundhog Day...

Combine the school districts to reduce spending of huge salaries.

A BIG thank you for seeking this input from effected local citizens on issues that directly or indirectly impact them. A fresh air approach to teaming!!!! Hooray 😃!

How do you set a 20 year plan for the fire dept. Last I knew it was a separate enity.

The only questions I could answer confidently were the last two! That is an overwhelming list of initiatives!

You forgot golf carts. I’ll vote for any future candidate that supports golf carts on city streets.

please, will the November 2 session be open to the public? or not?

Guess you took the job?😳😲🤗

Update: As you may already know, the weather did not permit this 'weather permitting' project. We'll update you again the next time Heartland may be able to let loose the dogs of sealcoat.

Weather permitting, we're trying this again. The blacktopped area next to Heartland Bank and Parish's, and the alley behind Lindy's will close. During that time traffic at the Lindy's entrance from Peoria St will be temporarily 2-way. Dogs and cats will lie together. The world will be topsy turvy.

Saturday night, October 5, through Monday morning, the generously-provided Heartland Bank lot you normally traverse to exit will be sealcoated, they say for maintenance, but we say so you learn to appreciate its service and convenience.

Don't park there, behind Lindy's or next to Parish's overnight. Don't traverse the area while it's closed. Don't run with scissors or talk with your mouth full. Also, don't go watch expecting cute animals (wrong kind of seal).

Your post are informative and hilarious. I’ll be the first one to forget this 🤦🏻‍♀️

Will there be seating available to watch people get livid over people who exit Lindy’s the way you described? Cause we all know at a minimum there are going to be some mean looks and people telling each other they are “number 1”.

What if a moose decides to go thru there?
