The Easter Egg Hunt which was held in Dolle's Park on the 12th of April was a big success! The weather was beautiful and there were around 50 children who participated. We would like to thank everyone who helped to make it a succes! A special Thank you to Shannon Emmert who coordinated the event.
Heavy Trash Pick-up Dates:
June 20, 2014 - September 19, 2014
Residents are encouraged to use these dates to place one heavy item out for trash pickup. Items may consist of anything that would not contain freon or that would in any way harm the environment.
If you have more than one item, maybe your neighbor is not going to put anything out??
A note from our Utility Superintendent:
Please do not dump any grease or oils down your drains. We are having a problem with grease buildup in the lift station that is causing it to malfunction. We have had to start treating for the grease build up in hopes to prevent costly repairs. Sewer rates are directly affected by operational costs. For you convenience there is a grease trap located behind the Town Hall, in the N.W. corner of the parking lot. Thank you for your consideration in this matter.
Community Bench Project:
By collecting CAPS from household containers, benches can be made from something that would ordinarily be thrown away.
400lbs. + $200 = a bench
This program is offered from Greentree Plastics in Evansville, Indiana to involve young people in recycling and community service. Any plastic cap that is clean and free of metal may be donated.
Some examples include:
- Snap on-cottage cheese, coffee can, and yogurt lids.
- Twist on-medicine, drink bottles and milk (including the ring).
- Flip top-ketchup and condiment bottles.
- Large twist-detergent.
- Spout-such as squirt mustard.
Drop off locations are: Atlanta Town Hall, Atlanta Music Hall and the Atlanta Library
A big THANK YOU to everyone who has been collecting plastic lids! We are close to getting our first bench!
The council recently passed an ordinance which requires trash carts to be placed at the curb no earlier than 12:00 noon on the day preceding the designated collection day and for prompt retrieval of the trash carts no later than 12:00 noon the following day.
The intent of this ordinance is to prevent carts from sitting on or near the streets indefinitely.
PayGov is now set up.
There are 3 options: Pay in the Town Hall, Call after hours #, or go online.
