2018 November Newsletter

Schaap Sanitation: Schaap is in town every Monday for garbage pickup and every other Wednesday for recyclables. The time that they are in town is not always the same, it can be as early as 4:00am! If you want to make sure your container is being emptied, PLEASE PUT THEM ON THE CURB THE NIGHT BEFORE!!!! Make sure you put the bar on the front toward the street. Thank you for your cooperation.

Recycle Shed & City Hall dumpsters: There is a red and white shed behind the former bank building, this is for Round Lake residents to put larger items for recycling pickup. If you have filled your container and just have extra recyclables, they can also go in the green containers at City Hall. PLEASE REMEMBER THIS IS FOR RESIDENTS OF ROUND LAKE or others who pay for a utility service from the City of Round Lake ONLY! The dumpsters by City Hall are also available for the residents when they have filled their own containers. (Keep in mind, it is illegal to use another person’s dumpster without their permission.) The dumpster by the bank is a privately rented dumpster, please don’t use it unless you are leasing the bank. Thank you!

Colder Weather: The temperatures are going down, now is a good time to make sure your furnace is running properly. Stay warm and have a safe heating season, get your furnace checked and replace those filters.

City of Round Lake Website: Visit our City website at roundlk.net and see important City news and announcements. City Council Meeting minutes are posted once they are approved at the monthly council meeting. Monthly newsletters are also posted near the beginning of each month.

Calling all parents: Do you have children ages 0-4 years old?  If you answered yes, please call the Round Lake Brewster School to make sure your child is on the census.  We use the census to contact parents to let them know of educational opportunities through the school like ECFE, Preschool and Early Childhood Screening.  You may call the school at 507-842-5951 or email dawn.haberman@rlb.mntm.org  (Please include Child’s name, Birthdate, Parents names, address and Phone number.)
