We have a busy month ahead of us in Wesley. The city is gearing up for the 4th of July celebration at the South Park! Please check out the day’s events in the newsletter. The Library kicks of the festivities on the 3rd of July with their annual Glow Run starting at 7 pm at the library! City news is you will be seeing an increase in water, sewer and garbage rates on the July bill. The new shelter house and restrooms should be completed by the celebration also it will be available for rent for your family gatherings/graduations etc. To reserve, please call city hall. Around town there are new signs going up for “Storm Shelter” which is located at Community Center in case of a natural disaster. You will also be seeing “Slow Children at Play” signs going up throughout town as well. The pool has enjoyed a good 1st month of the summer, thank you again for your donations to fix the pool.
