2017 May Newsletter

 The City Council: The next City Council meeting will be on Wednesday, May 10th, 2017 at 6:15pm at City Hall.

Gopher State BEFORE YOU DIG!!! – It’s that time of year again. See the back of this page for an important safety notice.

2017 Dog Licenses are PAST DUE!! – City ordinance requires all dogs within the City limits to be licensed for their protection. Please bring your proof of rabies shots when paying for the dog tags. The cost is $2.00 per tag, every dog within City limits must have a license. Thank you for respecting our ordinance.

Dog ordinance: ALL dogs MUST be on a leash or tied up when outside. There have been multiple dogs running loose around town and this is not acceptable. Please tie ALL dogs when they are outside, it’s a courtesy to your neighbors. That means when you are on a walk as well. Any questions, feel free to contact City Hall.

Gas Budgets:  Gas budgets will begin in June, if you are not current with your utility bills, you are not eligible for the budget plan. If you would like to adjust the amount of your gas budget, please stop in and talk to Elaine or call 507-945-8127 to discuss, otherwise you will automatically pay the same amount each month as last year. This is the only time during 2017 to get on the budget plan, so if it’s something you’ve been wanting to do, don’t miss the deadline. Deadline to be on the budget plan for 2017 is May 15th, 2017. This will give me time to setup your account for the budget plan.

Round Lake City Website:  Visit our website at www.roundlk.net. We post important messages relating to the community and once they are approved you can read the minutes from the Council Meetings. This newsletter is posted at the beginning of each month also.

Building Permits:  If you are planning to build or move any buildings into the City of Round Lake, you will need to get a building permit. Permits are required for fences and car ports, but not for sidewalks and driveways. If you have questions as to whether or not you need a building permit, please stop in City Hall. Permits need council approval and it’s best to get the applications in early.

Current Phone Numbers:  It has become a problem with people getting rid of their landlines, some of the contact numbers in my system are no longer working numbers. If you have changed your phone number for any reason, PLEASE contact City Hall to update your information. If there is an emergency that we need to contact you for, we MUST have your current contact information. If you have an email address that you can receive emergency messages, please provide that to me as well.
