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 2018 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 2018 is May 15th, 2018. This will give me time to setup your account for the budget plan.

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 cost of a building permit is $5.00, payable to the City of Round Lake.

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 and we need to contact you, we MUST have your current contact information. If you have an email address that you would like to receive emergency messages on, please provide that to me as well.
