It is that time again to get your dogs registered for 2019 at City Hall. Registration fee is $10.00 for spayed or neutered dogs or $20.00 for not spayed or neutered. Please also bring up a copy of vaccinations; if you already did this last year and they are not expired you do not need to bring another copy, if unsure call City Hall and I can help in anyway. Every owner of a dog six months shall procure a dog license from the office of City Clerk on or before January 1 of each year, or within thirty days of the animal being brought into the city, or when the animal has reached six months of age. All dogs not register and picked up running at large will be sent over to County pound and may acquire a fee.


NOTE FROM THE MAYOR
Dear Residents,
As always it has been a very busy month at the city. Some of the happenings at the city are: City Council unanimously passed the purchase of a new pay loader. Our old loader was 20 years old and needed costly repairs. This pay loader will be funded by a GO bond and should be paid off in 2022. The pool repairs are finalized and could be started as early as December; Acco Pools contractor said they will have the work done, so the pool can open on time in the summer of 2019. The council recently passed a Flood Plain Management Ordinance. This is an ordinance that must be in place in order for you as a home owner to seek out flood insurance through your insurer. Details and more information are available at city hall. The water tower maintenance/inspection went well, and no major repairs should need to be done at this time. I want to wish all of you and your families a safe and Happy Thanksgiving!

Best Regards,
Vahn Schumacher

Thank you to everyone who bought a wreath or other greenery for the Kids for Christ fundraiser. We sold 190 items and raised $1,321.42 plus $175 in cash donation. We are so grateful to have such awesome support from the community! We hope you enjoy your items have a blessed Advent and Christmas!

St. Joseph Guild is sponsoring a “Cookie Walk” on Saturday, December 15, in the parish hall from 9 – 11 am, or until the cookies run out. All are invited! This is a great opportunity to let others do your Christmas baking for you!

The Giving Tree is up at St. Joseph's. If you would like to help a family in Kossuth County this Christmas, please stop in and grab a tag or two. You do not have to buy everything on the tag. They are just ideas that were given by the families. Each family gets one gas card and one grocery card. Each child gets 3 tags - one for clothes, one for a toy, and one for something else they requested. Please return wrapped gifts back under the tree by December 16. If you have any questions, please contact Mandy Glawe (515.341.4452).

Kids for Christ will be hosting an Advent program, Open Your Hearts, on Sunday, December 16 at 2 pm. The St. Joseph's choir will be singing and the kids will be preforming the Nativity skit during this program along with time to reflect on what Christmas is all about. Following the program, there will be hot chocolate and goodies in the parish hall. Everyone is invited to attend and take some time to unwind during this busy time of year.
