2017 March Newsletter

The next City Council meeting will be on Tuesday, March 7th, 2017 at 6:15pm at City Hall.

Automatic Payments – If you would like to know more information about the automatic payment plan we currently have at the City, please stop in during regular office hours to discuss. This is offered at no charge to you and all I would need is for you to fill out an authorization form and provide a voided check for the account you would like to use for your City Utility payments. If you would like to have a form mailed out to you, please let me know. Each month on the 15th the automatic payment will be taken out of your bank account, if it lands on a weekend or holiday it’s the next business day. You will receive the bill as usual around the 1st of the month, so you will know the amount of your utility bill and on the 15th, the payment is made for that exact amount and you don’t have to worry about it.

2017 Dog License: Are now PAST DUE!!!! Please stop down to City Hall and pay the $2.00 per dog to satisfy your responsibility as part of the Round Lake community. Bring proof of rabies shot so we can have it on file for your dog. It’s in our ordinances that all dogs MUST be licensed and on a LEASH AT ALL TIMES!!!! Thank you. City Hall has received reports of dogs running loose, please tie them when you put them out! It’s our City policy. They were due January 1st!


SNOW REMOVAL REMINDER! City ordinance states “no vehicles or other items are to be parked on the street during snowfall, until AFTER snow removal is done”. PLEASE honor this ordinance! Having vehicles parked on the street makes it dangerous for the plow drivers and risks damage to your vehicles. Do NOT push or blow snow onto your neighbor’s property, it’s disrespectful and they don’t appreciate it. City Ordinance states that you are not to blow snow into City streets either. Clear snow around mailboxes to make it easier to deliver the mail, we all need to work together to make the winter months better for all of us! Only 20 days until spring! Thank you in advance!



Community Bible Study – Come join others in the community for a video series “Growing Closer to God”. Meetings will be held at the White House next door to the Presbyterian Church. Each Saturday in March, starting Saturday, March 4th gather at the White House, next door to the Presbyterian Church, at 2:30pm. The video and discussion will last about an hour. This opportunity is open to the entire community. If you are new to the area, it’s a great way to meet your neighbors and learn a little more about God’s word. Bring a friend, the more the merrier!

RL American LegionSunday, March 5th from 8am-Noon, the RL American Legion will be serving their delicious pancake breakfast!! Each month they prepare the area’s best pancakes and fill your plate with scrambled eggs and sausage. All you care to eat for only $6, top it all off with coffee and orange juice.
