7.10.2023 Mayor’s Message

Hello Everyone,

  • A week ago Sue and I were Blessed to be part of our family’s vacation and it was extra special as I don’t believe this particular group has been together before.  There were siblings, cousins, in-laws from North Dakota, South Dakota, Minnesota, Nevada and Arkansas.  The event was “touching”.  That many of us are “older”, get together with family whenever the opportunities present themselves as we never know what the future brings.
  • SCAM!  “All American Publishing” has been engaged in a deceptive t-shirt scam, falsely claiming to represent VCPS Boys Basketball.  If you are contacted, please let Athletic Director, Rob Hunt, know: rob.Hunt@K12.ND.US
  • Our automated garbage pick up is working well mechanically, I hope you are enjoying the change.  Will you please take a few minutes to re-read the directions that were attached to your container or online at: https://www.valleycity.us/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/can-instructions-7.pdf .  Some critical points are, facing the container correctly (wheels to the curb), having three feet of clearance all around the container and putting your container out by 7:00 AM.  Please please review the information as it will improve efficiency for you.
  • Wednesday July 12th is the “Music in the Park” series. This week the “Oakland Grove – Family Band” is featured.  Go to our beautiful “City Park” and hear music performed in the bandshell.  The quality of sound from the bandshell is “top shelf” according to one of the bands I visited.
  • Thursday, July 13, is the season’s first “Summer Nights on Central” featuring “Tripwire”.  Shopping Happy Hour 4 – 6, vendors open at 5:30 and the concert is from 6 – 9.  Go uptown for a bite to eat, lots of visiting and good music.
  • Thanks to all who provide and proof material for this article.
