4.30.2023 Mayor’s Message

Hi Folks,

  • Finally, it seems we have a “break” in the weather and self-servingly, I am grateful.  Isn’t it remarkable how efficiently the snow melted in the cool gloomy weather?  It was as close to a perfect melt as that for which we could ask.
  • While the ground is drying, there are still some roads unfit for travel.  When you see a “ROAD CLOSED” sign, please honor said sign as it may be a condition that would damage your vehicle, the road base or shoulders.  When our city or our park district has to make repairs, it requires tax dollars affecting us all!
  • This year’s “CROP Hunger Walk” is Wednesday, May 3 at 6:30 beginning in the Jefferson School area.  Bring a donation, sign in and learn of hunger issues.  North Dakota has 42,290 people of which 13,690 are children facing hunger.  That equates to 1 in 13 children in ND!  Please look into it, Blessings.
  • Last week was “Administrative Professionals’ Day”.  Let those special employees know you appreciate them whether you are an employer or a customer.  From all of us, “Thank you”.
  • Last weekend was the NFL Draft.  Though I didn’t watch much, I did see enough to know it was a huge production shown on numerous mediums and networks.  It sounds like Kansas City did a great job hosting.  An NFL fan’s “smorgasbord”!
  • It is “National Small Business Week” with Valley City and MRES being proud to “power-on” small businesses.  Now you can contribute by “shopping local” and supporting your favorite small businesses.
  • Last week flows from Baldhill Dam were reduced and barring significant rains, the forecast is again promising for this week.  Keep the Faith.
  • Thanks to all who provide and proof material for this article.
  • The two most important days in your life are the day you are born and the day you figure out why.”
