From The Office Of The Mayor
Greetings neighbors and friends.
Just to keep you updated on the South Mississippi lift station project. Progress is moving along as scheduled. We will continue to keep the community updated on the progress of the lift station and completion date.
You may have noticed that the recreational trail was tapped off. The trail needed to be resealed to repair the cracks in the trail. Once sealed and dried, the trail will be re-opened.
The Park Board is holding their annual fundraiser “The Pumpkin Dash”. This will be Saturday, October 12thfrom 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. please show your suppose for the Park Board and come and join the fun. Area businesses will host trick-or-treat stations while each finisher will receive a pumpkin. For questions, or if you wish to help, please contact City Hall and they will put you in touch with a member of the Park Board.
The City Council voted to have Trick-or-Treat Wednesday, October 30thfrom 5:30 p.m. until 7:30 p.m. Please take extra caution and be aware of our little ghosts and goblins.
There have been some comments and concerns in regards to our traffic enforcement by the Blue Grass Police Department specifically Sargent Jahns. For many years citizens’ concerns were stop signs and especially speeding violations. The community demanded action. With the hiring of Sargent Jahns we have met those demands. Contrary to popular belief, Sargent Jahns has issued more warnings then actual tickets. I support Sargent Jahns 100% and have instructed him to continue protecting this community, especially our children playing and riding bicycles in our streets. When you see Sargent Jahns on patrol, wave him down and get to know him as he is part of our community. If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to contact me.
The City is looking into a grant to create the old fire station into a “safe house”. In the event of a major catastrophe, this would allow another place of assembly. More details to follow.
Don’t forget to adopt our Volunteer Fireman and sign up to provide a simple meal as a way to say Thank you for all they do - contact Chief Brian Seamer.
Please plan on attending your City Council Meetings held on the 1stand 3rdMonday of each month. Your input is needed.
Please remember our men and women in uniform; because of what they do and what they have done I am able to write this letter. God bless each and every one of them.
In closing, I would like to add that it is an honor to serve this community. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free contact me at City Hall 381-4700 or the City cell phone 349-1359, or my home phone at 381-2803.
Sincerely, Brinson L. Kinzer, Mayor of the City of Blue Grass
