- Snow emergency regulations are now in effect for the winter season. Now through April 15th, you can’t park on the streets between midnight and 7:00am during a “snow emergency”. That’s defined as any time there’s expected to be 3 inches of snow or more.
- If you’re thinking of running for office, the deadline to hand in your registration papers is 5:oo pm on Tuesday, January 7th, 2020 (that’s a strict deadline; 5:01 is too late.)
- There will be 4 elections in the city this year, including the big general election on November 3rd. It’s important to remember that most politics happens at the local level. The Chronicle will be doing its best to report on area elections–and the candidates–throughout this campaign season.
- Throughout the winter, City crews will be removing city-owned trees that have been killed off by the emerald ash borers. Residents are reminded to pay attention and keep clear of crews that are working.
- As the temperatures start to drop, remember that sidewalks must be kept clear of ice and snow. A lot of area residents and visitors use the sidewalks to get to school, church, and work, and to visit businesses and friends. Untended sidewalks become dangerous–especially for senior citizens.
