CITY TO FOG FOR MOSQUITOS
It’s mosquito time again and the City Maintenance crews are preparing for battle. Dusk or dawn fogging and the use of larvae-killing briquettes are the main ingredients of our battle plan. City employees will soon start to fog, if weather permits, and will continue on an as-needed basis. Spraying will take place in the late evening or early morning before dawn.
On Wednesday, July 26, Willard Fire & Rescue and the American Red Cross will be in the Emerald Street & Pearl Street neighborhood in Willard starting around 4:30pm installing free smoke alarms and educating residents about home fire safety. Willard Fire & Rescue personnel along with American Red Cross volunteers will be canvassing the neighborhood, knocking on doors, and offering to install smoke alarms in homes as the need is identified. All services are free to the public.
The City is once again excited about taking a substantial step forward in improving our streets and making our community a better place. This year you will invest over half a million dollars in street improvements. When you combine that with the efforts City forces are making to repair concrete streets and maintain the streets we do have, you’ll see that we are taking large strides at catching up to where we need to be. This is just another reason we are proud to call Willard home!
Precision Paving Inc. is under contract with the City of Willard and is responsible for the resurfacing of the attached streets. This Contractor is tentatively scheduled to begin the pavement portion of the street improvements on August 7th. The estimated construction time for this project is 8 weeks.
On street parking in these areas will be prohibited between the hours 6:00 am to 7:00 pm. Cars parked in these areas will be subject to be towed at their owner's expense. Signs will be placed in advance clearly marking these areas.
Provisions will be made for emergency vehicles at all times. We also realize how inconvenient this is and will do everything possible to expedite this process. Your patience and cooperation during these construction phases are appreciated.
If you have any specific health needs or any other questions or concerns, please contact us at (419) 935-6555 and we will do our best to accommodate those needs and answer those questions.
