2019 April Newsletter

The next City Council meeting will be on Wednesday, April 17th at 6:15pm in City Hall.

Bill Stubs: I would like to thank all of you who remember to bring your stubs with when paying your utility bills. It saves time for both of us and makes it much easier to make sure payments are put on the proper accounts. I encourage all residents to take a minute to grab their bill when stopping in to pay, thank you in advance! If you would like more information on the automatic payment program, let me know! You will receive your bill as usual and on the 15th of each month your payment will come out of your bank account automatically. You need to fill out a form and provide the City with a voided check. There is no fee for this service and you avoid those dreaded late notices!

Dog Licenses: If you have not gotten your 2019 Dog License yet, PLEASE stop in and pay the $2.00 fee for each dog. It’s important and REQUIRED if you live in Round Lake to have your dogs licensed. Bring rabies shot information for your dogs so I can make a copy. If you own a dog and do not have the license yet, you are in violation of our ordinance.

Reminder: Remove sump pump hoses from the sanitary sewer if you have not already done so.

Gas Budget Customers:  If you are a current gas budget customer, please plan on talking to me about your account. Budgets have ended for the season. PLEASE call me if you have any questions about your account. You MUST BE CURRENT with your account to qualify for the budget program. If you are not a gas budget customer but would like to be, stop down and discuss it with me during business hours. 2019 Gas Budget will start again on June’s billing, if you are currently a gas budget customer you will stay on the program unless you notify me to take you off.

Great meals and community fellowship are yours for the taking. Don’t forget to bring a friend or two!

Spring Clean-Up: Will be on Monday, April 29th ONLY this year. You may start putting items on the boulevard one week prior, please keep this in mind and respect your neighbors. If you have any questions, call me at City Hall 507-945-8127. You can purchase stickers during regular business hours at City Hall. Items that need stickers are listed on the enclosed Spring Clean-Up flyer. This is available for City residents ONLY. Nothing is to be brought into the city from the country.

Board of Appeal and Equalization: Will be held at City Hall on Thursday, April 25th at 10:30am. Public welcome. The Nobles County Assessor and her staff will be here to answer questions you have about your property valuation for taxes payable in 2020.

City of Round Lake website: The City has a website where we post important information. The web address is www.roundlk.net and you are encouraged to check for alerts or monthly newsletters. We do our best to keep it up to date, but occasionally other things are more important. Please be patient and give me a call if you are looking for something that is not on there. I post the minutes only after they are approved at the council meeting, so they will be the minutes from the previous month when they are on the website. Monthly newsletters will go on as soon as ready.
