MAYOR'S CORNER September, 2013
I hope you are all enjoying this nice fall weather. I don’t know about you, but I would sure like to enjoy a couple more months of 75 degree weather…..
A couple of important dates for you to remember:
• Halloween – Trick’r Treat night will be on Sunday night, October 27th, from 4:00 – 6:00. It seems like a Sunday night works better for this fun night, so we chose this date for this fun activity.
• Leaf Burning - It’s okay to burn leaves from October 1st through November 15th. Be sure to be careful and also be courteous of your neighbors and please do not burn when it is windy.
I received a call this week regarding a scam call that she had received. Her call was a good reminder for all of us to always be careful and do not provide unknown callers with confidential information. This particular individual received a call from someone regarding “changing her social security number”. Just an FYI, as far as I know, they are not going to change your SS# over the phone, so always be careful. If you have any doubts or questions about calls like these, you can always give Steve Aiello a call and he can check it out for you.
We have quite a few trees that are overhanging the streets and sidewalks and street signs. Steve Aiello will be sending out notices for these situations. He will be notifying you to get these trees trimmed. You will be given time to get this completed. If you are not able to get it done or if you need assistance with this task, you can call the City Hall and the city can do this for you for a fee.
Exciting News!!!!! Jen Aiello was at our Council Meeting requesting approval from the city to possibly have the Bremer County Freedom Rock located in Readlyn. There is a program started to get a Freedom Rock in each county in Iowa and it is on a 1st come, 1st to get it basis. With Jen’s efforts and the assistance of the Community Club, we are proud to announce that Readlyn will be the home of the Bremer County Freedom Rock! We have two rocks available, one in the old railroad property and one by the sewer plant. The exact location is yet to be determined – with completion expected by 2018. Thanks Jen – we appreciate all your work on this great project! If you would like to know more about this exciting project, give Jen a call.
The City Council has discussed the possibility of up-dating our tractor loader with a newer unit or possibly replacing it with a small wheel loader. With winter coming around the corner, we will be working to get this done before the snow falls.
The city engineer, Erv Mussman, from Shive Hatterly, was at our Council Meeting to discuss the timetable and direction of the city’s sewer/water treatment system project. We need to up-date the DNR on these plans and our time table. Erv will be working with Fox Engineering and the DNR on this project. Fox Engineering will visit our site and they will look at the city’s available options. For many reasons, sometime in the future, we will be up-dating our 47 year old sewer plant. As we move forward with this BIG project, I will be sure to keep you all informed. We will also be holding some informational “Town Hall” meetings for the community.
Fall harvest will be here soon, so watch out for all the farm equipment out there on the roads and in town at the elevator. Enjoy this beautiful weather…..
Thanks! Dan Wedemeier, Mayor
