5.8.2022 Mayor’s Message

Hi Folks,

  • Thank you to all for helping with the flood and kudos to Valley City Citizens for dedicating a portion of sales tax dollars for permanent flood protection.  Without it, along with the legislature and SWC, Valley City could have looked like the war zone we had in 2009, 2010 and 2011!
  • A positive from the flood battle was people working together for the good of all.  With so many divisive issues in our lives, seeing people coming together is gratifying; “come together, the answer is usually somewhere in the middle”.
  • May 2-6 was Teacher Appreciation Week and Wednesday VCPS had a nice gathering at the HAC recognizing teachers along with a number of individual awards.  Thank a teacher, as her/his passion to educate our youth is critical for our nation’s future.
  • With rains over the weekend, please make sure your sump pumps are discharging outside to lessen the load on the sanitary sewer
  • This spring’s “clean-up week” will be June 6-11. Please check the City Website and Facebook Page for details.
  • May 15th annually is Peace Officers’ Memorial Day.  Please pray for families of the deceased and disabled.
  • The City Transfer Station is open Saturdays from 8-noon.
  • Thank you to contributors again this week.
  • “Some things you can give away and still keep are your word, a smile and a grateful heart.”                                                                                         (Zig Ziglar)                                                                                                                                                                                  Blessings, Respect, Kindness and Prayers,
