  • Neighbors raised concerns about snow removal and other city issues.  Alderman Bohl was in attendance and took notes regarding the issues.
  • For narrow streets and during snow storms, please park on the even house address side of the street on even days and on the odd house address side of the street on odd days.  Please ask your guests to do the same.  This will aide in snow removal and neighborhood safety and is required during snow emergencies.
