Gentle Reminder: If it is during business hours, PLEASE don’t put your payment in the door, stop in and hand it to me at the counter! City Hall is open from 7:00am-noon and 1:00-4:00pm Monday- Friday for your convenience. Also, remember to rip off the BOTTOM part of the bill and include it with your payment, this helps me credit the right account and cuts down on the time it takes to make a payment.

City Hall offers a rebate program for new electric appliances. Rebates are given in December each year. To learn more, stop in and ask about the Energy Star conservation improvement program. Appliances must meet the criteria listed on the information sheets, available at City Hall.

SPOTLIGHT ON: Round Lake History Center. Much work has been done on a former classroom to the north of the library to turn it into a Round Lake History Center. New ceiling tile, new lights, new paint, insulated and covered windows are all done. The former windows are being further enhanced by murals of historic Round Lake scenes drawn by RL graduate Benjamin Postma. Collections of Round  Lake memorabilia  and  pictures are on display. It is really starting to take shape and  looks  awesome.  The  finishing  touch  would  be installation of indoor/outdoor carpet on the floors. This would complete the remodeling of the Round Lake History Center. If you would like to contribute to this project (memorabilia or donations) our mailing address is 445 Harrison Street, Round  Lake,  MN 56167. Thank you.
