First City Council meeting of 2016 was Jan 14. Great meeting, public input was informative and productive. Topic of interest was the Landlord/ Renter discussion. Council decided to table this subject for two years! Community members concerned about speeding traffic at the crosswalk. A discussion to check out a solar flashing crosswalk will be researched. Thank you Councilman Schey. Come to these meetings! They are the 2nd and 4th Thursday at 6:00. What's On Your Mind?
Of public interest - January 19 at 6:00 will be a meeting at City Hall by Lewis County. An update on our water system & maintenance program will be presented by Tim Elsie.
Did you know: Vader once had an Opera House, Hotel, Bakery and Butcher Shop? Stop by Secondhand Rose Thrift and pick up your Vader History book. Filled with photo's and old landmarks. Excellent gift or local history lesson. One of our new residence owns the "Doctors " office a business in Vader for years. The old post office, general store, pharmacy and doctors office are just a few of private residence now.
Playground equipment at Werden Park is still needed. Not enough money left after the purchase of the park extension. So now what? Fundraiser? A nice activity set with a slide and swings for our smaller children would be nice. Cost range for a sturdy set is between $1,200-$1,800. Let's pull together and make this happen by spring!
