12.8.2021 Mayor’s Message

Hi Everyone,

  • Well, “How about our WEATHER”?  One thing, if one wants some fresh air, it doesn’t take long to get it. The wind will eventually get “tired” at which time going outside will be tolerable.
  • Barnes County is doing well with COVID numbers again this week; good job folks.  We still must be aware of the “COVID Variance” strain that is out there and it is more contagious than the first one.  We have had about 1200 – 1300 cases of the virus, which represents about 11% of our population.  “Herd Immunity” needs about 75% plus so we are quite a ways from that.  To protect yourself and others, be vaccinated and continue the mitigation practices a bit longer.
  • Valley City employees Tyler Martin, Nick Yokum and Alec Storhoff all completed continuing education in their respective fields.  Thanks for your investment in Valley City guys.
  • COVID VACCINATIONS, visit the City-County Health District website, citycountyhealth.org or call 845-8518 for help. Currently, people 65 with underlying conditions and older are eligible. 
  • * Hey folks, next Sunday is Valentine’s Day, remember the “special ones” in your life.  “Happy Valentine’s Day”.
  • In January Valley City’s municipal power was on 100% of the time!  That is special.  Thanks to Public Works and the Electrical Department.
  • Remember “LOVE OF LOCAL”.  You can purchase your Chamber Bucks at the Rosebud Center and receive a 23-25% discount.  * It is a great way to leverage some of your stimulus check.
  • “There is nothing on this earth more to be prized than true friendship.      (Thomas Aquinas)                                                    

Blessings, Pray, Be Safe and Be Kind,
