Cold Weather Rule: In order to qualify for protection under the Cold Weather Rule, the customer’s account must be current for the billing period immediately prior to October 15, 2018. If you have any questions or need further information about this rule, please call City Hall at 507-945-8127. Information on Energy Assistance available at City Hall. This rule WON’T protect you from utility shut off, it’s not an excuse to stop paying your bills. Stop in for more information.

Conservation Improvement Program: The City of Round Lake offers a rebate program to support our conservation efforts. We have an appliance rebate program that is available to all utility customers. To qualify for the rebate the appliance must be an ENERGY STAR appliance on the list of qualifying appliances. You need to bring the YELLOW STICKER from the appliance and the receipt (must be purchased in 2018 to qualify for this year’s program) to City Hall and fill out a special form. Once I have all of this information, we will be giving the rebate on your December bill. REMEMBER – IT MUST BE PURCHASED IN 2018 TO QUALIFY!

Heating Season: The heating season is fast approaching! Please make sure your furnace and/or heaters are in working order. Now is a good time to make any repairs or replacements, if necessary, before the cold weather really sets in.

Plan to take the family out for a great morning meal! It is all you can eat, so you get your money’s worth! Stop in before or after church!

RL American Legion: Pork chop meal will be October 13th from 5:00pm until gone. If you’ve never been to the pork chop feed, make a point to check it out!
