Autumn leaves and Fall breezes are found here. Look what’s new! This wonderful bench has been added to the pavilion on Britton St. for all to enjoy with a plan for more. We could not be happier with the results. This new bench is just one part of the city’s beautification and enrichment efforts that are planned in the coming months.

It’s not only a great place to sit and enjoy the day but also the perfect photo op with the fall decor.

Water Tower Lighting

On September 26, 2018, the City held a ceremony at our Park Pavilion celebrating the lighting of our downtown water tower.

Many thanks go out to the following people who joined us and made this a great event—Type A Community Development Corporation members and their families, Public Works Director Steve Dane for setting up everything and providing his drone service for this event, Helen Smith Jump for letting us use her speaker system for the music chosen from 2001: A Space Odyssey, Larry Howard for photos, and our special Sugar Plum Fairy for providing the delicious homemade cookies!

This is a continuing service provided by our Type A board to market our city for the future. Thank you all who came out and was part of this community event.
