The November election is right around the corner – November 4th. Not only is this a gubernatorial election for us, but Oconto has an extremely important school referendum to participate in! I encourage everyone (as always) to become informed, that they vote in the best interests of the future of our children. City Hall has explanatory pamphlets on the counter for everyone’s perusal, meetings are being arranged that you can ask questions, and I am sure any member of the school board or the superintendent would be happy to answer any questions you have. Please exercise your very important right, and VOTE!
Also, in-house absentee voting begins at City Hall on Monday, October 20th and goes through October 31st during regular business house (8 a.m. To 5 p.m.). Also, you may register to vote for the first time – bring a form of identification (including present address).
Please remember that our fall curbside collection of leaves and garden waste starts on October 13th and continues until November 21st, if weather permits. It is not possible to tell you the exact day of pick up. Please place material at the curb in separate piles, in a row, no more than 4 feet wide or 3 feet high. Leaves should be placed between the curb and sidewalk – not in the street – not around obstacles such as street signs or trees. No brush or bagged or mixed material will be picked up. You may also bring loose leaves and garden waste to the City’s yard waste site at 1616 Main Street. Any questions call 834-7725 between 6:30 a.m. To 3:00 p.m., Monday thru Friday.
I am very pleased to announce that our Steve Woodworth of our Oconto Utility has earned the honor of State of Wisconsin Operator of the Year! We are very proud of this designation and will offer our congratulations to Steve at the Regular Council Meeting on October 14th at 6:00 p.m. Please be sure to do the same when you see Steve – for bringing this honor to Oconto!
A HUGE Oconto Thank You to our new business QuikTrip for their wonderful donation of $500 toward the repair of the Farnsworth Library roof! Such a perfect gesture toward their new community!
Have A Great Day! And remember, “There are far better things ahead than any we leave behind.” – C.S. Lewis
