12.11.2022 Mayor’s Message

Hi Everyone,

  • Last Saturday Valley City Parks and Rec. sponsored a youth basketball tournament with over 65 teams. It was fun seeing all the people around town.  Thank you Parks & Rec.!
  • Since we have had more slippery conditions, there have been more accidents.  That said, there have been a number of injuries and deaths where people were not wearing seatbelts.  “Seatbelts save lives”.  Please wear a seatbelt, it may save your life allowing you continued time with your family and friends.  
  • Christmas Lighting, garland, trees and other decorations are present throughout town.  During this season of love, hope and peace, why not take a little drive and enjoy?
  • This week’s weather is forecast to be pretty nasty with possible rain, snow and wind.  Be sure to have a complete winter survival kit in your vehicles and drive as conditions dictate.  Be safe.
  • Become a sports official, “Without officials, it is just practice”.  Call 701-845-3953 for information.
  • Every once-in-awhile conflicts seem to arise in our lives.  A path to finding resolution is; clarify the issue, bring parties together to talk and identify possible solutions.  To make it work, we each need to respect the other’s position and simply communicate. Face-to-face seems to be the most effective so  “Don’t let your ants become alligators” communicate.
  • There are a couple weeks left to “Ring the Bell”.  Please sign up and enjoy seeing the people. Call Naomi at 701-541-1418 or Lenora at 701-840-1357.  Thank you to all who “donate and ring” for our Barnes County Salvation Army Unit.
  • Thanks to all who provide and proof material for this article.
