Blog

Our loyal readers have likely noticed that our blog schedule has changed. For a long time, we published a new blog post each week. We apologize for the recent lack of posts, but are happy to announce an exciting change coming later this month.

Did you know that the City changes the development code on a regular basis? These text changes, also known as text amendments, can be requested by citizens, staff members, or the City Council to address new development trends or to correct issues with the existing language. This blog will (hopefully) shed some light on the process and explain why it can sometimes be a lengthy one.

If you’re looking for something different to do during your lunch break this week, the City is hosting a couple of events that you may want to consider attending.

The recent snow and ice from Jonas served as a reminder that it is, indeed, winter!  Thankfully, we did not experience blizzard conditions, nor did the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man make an appearance as with 2014's "snowpocalypse."

Many did lose power, however, and road conditions were quite hazardous due to the ice. Today’s blog photo depicts just how icy it was in my backyard. Fortunately, the ice didn’t stick around too long as temperatures surged in the days following the storm.

Some City services were limited during the event, but our offices remained open for business. In an effort to keep our customers informed, we posted on Twitter and sent inclement weather alerts to our subscribers explaining what to do if your meter box was damaged and instructions for scheduling emergency electrical inspections.
