Rain, Rain go away-come again another day! An unbelievable Spring has brought us a lot of rain and cloudy skies. I look forward to June 21st, the first day of Summer. Let the fun begin.
Our Community market was a huge success in its new location. I heard numerous positive remarks about the new location and I noticed many returning vendors along with new vendors. Always the 3rd Wednesday of the month. Come out June 19th and stroll through the wonderful vendors tables. There will be live music for this market.
June 14th & 15th is the Power Pull Weekend. Festivities start Friday night at 7pm at Splinter Park. Food and refreshments will be available. If you haven’t attended one before you’re in for a real treat. The parade will be on Saturday at 2pm down Washington Street. Bring your lawn chairs and sit back and be entertained. Young and old love a parade. Let’s pray for some good weather. If you remember last year’s parade, the temperatures were over 100 degrees! There will also be a 5K and 3K run starting at the High School parking lot with all benefits going to the purchase of the K9 unit for Cuba City. Please get out and walk or run in support of the Police Department.
Flowers on Main Street have arrived. Thank you to the Chamber for providing our city with attractive flowers and planters. Also, a huge thank you to the many residents that maintain and water the flowers every evening. It is a major task so if you can help a few times, please let the watering group know by calling the Cuba City Greenhouse.
The city is studying a proposal for a new Comprehensive Plan for the City. A Request for Proposal was sent to eight different vendors to bid on the project cost. The Plan Commission will narrow the Proposal the Proposals down to three and the Common Council will make the decision. Having an updated Comprehensive Plan helps the city with plans for the years ahead plus getting funding through grants or government programs. We will be having 2 public meetings where you can come and tell us what you would like to see in Cuba City.
Some of the 2019 street project will starting soon. In the first phase we will be doing a full reconstruction of Yuba Street from Jackson Street to Randolph Street. We will black topping several more streets with ultra-thin materials that we have used the past 3 years. Please be patient with the crews when they are in town working.
