Running a city is a significant challenge. It is difficult to get a message out to as many people as possible in a short time. This web site is a great way to quickly educate visitors and residents on the key issues in the city.
ATTENTION FREEZING WATER LINES: Turn on a faucet in your house with a good steady flow and let it run 24HRS for the next month or so.  Please spread the word to neighbors and friends.
