April 1, 2019 Mayor’s Message
I think spring has finally come to the area. After a winter with a lot of snow and cold, everyone is looking forward to warmer weather. It is an exciting time of year when the trees begin to blossom, and the grass turns green.
There will be some big changes this year with the community market. It will be moving from Veteran’s Park to the Caboose area on Main Street. The move should improve the visibility of the market and in turn bring more customers as well as vendors to the market. If you are interested in being a vendor this year, contact City Hall for an application. I think it’s going to be a great year!
April is school library month. It is a time to celebrate our school’s library and librarians as they give us the tools to search for valuable information for school projects and research.
The city is preparing for this year’s street projects. Bids will soon be going out for Kelly Street next to Epione Pavilion and Yuba Street from Jackson to Randolph Street. We will continue applying some ultra-thin paving to more streets. These projects are subject to Council approval at their April 3rd regular meeting.
Cuba City’s city-wide garage sales are set for May 3rd and 4th. Please plan your garage sale early so you will be able to get on the map that outlines where each garage sale is located within the city.
A big “thank you” to the Chamber of Commerce for their work in changing the planters from Christmas, Valentines Day, and St. Patrick’s Day. The planters have been a very welcome addition to our Main Street. It won’t be long until we will see the beautiful flowers will again be a part of our city.
The downtown Task Force has welcomed two new members to their group. Teagan Graber and Jenna Droessler, both juniors at Cuba City High School, will bring a new perspective to the task force with new ideas. Our goal is to bring the younger generation back to Cuba City to live and raise their families. I would like to thank the Cuba City High School for allowing these girls to be a part of the task force.
In closing, we have so many things to be proud of in Cuba City. We have a great City Council, city employees, and a great school system. Thank you to every citizen of Cuba City for your part in making Cuba City what it is today!
