****City Residents - we need your help. Rags, heavy blue shop towels, flushable wipes, potato chip bags will all cause damage to our sewer system resulting in higher expenses and possible increase in fees to repair these damages.

Come to the City Hall or Community Center to pick up a book to read (no charge) or bring a book to share!!

REMINDER: in order to drive your golf carts on City streets you need to purchase a permit.  You will also need to show your license and proof of insurance as well.

Would you as City Residents be interested in tracking your water usage? Would you like to get Alerts if you have a water leak? We provide a free service that you can get by emailing or calling the City offices that will allow you to do just that.  It is called eyeonwater.
