The next City Council meeting will be on Wednesday, August 16th, 2017 at 6:15pm at City Hall.

Building Permits – If you need a building permit, please stop in City Hall and get an application. These are approved at a Council meeting and the deadline to be on the agenda for the August meeting is August 10th! Please don’t start construction until you have the permit approved by the Council.

Round Lake Senior Citizens Center – The Round Lake Senior Citizens Center would like to thank all of the volunteers for the generous time and work to help re-shingle the Senior Center building. They would also like to thank all of the ladies who brought food and served the volunteers. Everybody’s help was greatly appreciated!

Golf Cart Permit – The City has an ordinance regarding golf carts. If you are driving them on the city streets, you MUST have a permit sticker. They can be purchased at City Hall for $5, if you are caught by police without one, it will cost you more. All you need is the name of your insurance company and a rearview mirror on your golf cart. Let’s be safe and follow the rules!

Lost & Found – If anyone has found a lanyard with keys on it, please bring it up to City Hall. Thanks!

Lawns and Weeds – The weather has been quite dry, but the weeds seem to thrive in the sunlight. Please take a few minutes to look at your lawn and remove any tall weeds that are unsightly.
