A City of Progress, Pride and Possibilities.
What if kids were in charge of your city? The League of Minnesota Cities is asking 4th, 5th, and 6th graders what they would do as “Mayor for a Day” in our annual essay contest—specifically, how they would make it easier for residents to get from place to place (entries must be handwritten and postmarked no later than October 17).
Three winners will be chosen, awarded $100 each, and winning essays will be published in Minnesota Cities magazine. Please help us spread the word! Access the entry form at www.lmc.org/mayorforaday, and direct any questions to Don Reeder at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The contractors are finishing dirt work behind the curb, pouring concrete medians and remaining pedestrian ramps. They will also be paving the new Kerry Street cul-de-sac and the wear course on the north leg of the east roundabout. They anticipate all of this work being completed by mid-week next week. Permanent sign installation will continue into next week as finish grading and turf restoration is completed. Pavement painting will be completed as a night operation when all paving is done. Lighting for the roundabouts themselves is expected to be completed in the next 3 to 4 weeks. Lighting along the new trails is expected to be completed by mid-week next week.
