The Willard Park and Recreation Department is hoping to host the inaugural “Playground of Lights” at the city park. Our goal is to create a drive-thru holiday display for residents to enjoy by inviting businesses, organizations, churches, and individual families to create a Christmas/Holiday scene through Christmas lights and/or a live scene at the park.

FALL LEAF PICK UP
Fall leaf pick up has started. Just a reminder to our residents - PLEASE DO NOT RAKE LEAVES OUT INTO THE STREET. Leaves in or near catch basins can cause drainage problems. Please pile leaves on your boulevard, not in the street.
We are not running a scheduled route, we will just run the entire city. Remember, don't park cars in front of your leaves. Our machine needs room to get close to the leaves to pick them up.
The City offers residents a composting transfer area for drop off of leaves and yard waste material. This is for Willard residents only (no contractors). The site is located at the Maintenance Department at 537 Central. Drop off times are available during working hours, Monday through Friday, 7 am to 5 pm. Please contact the Maintenance Department at 419-933-7531 if you have any questions.
The Willard Reservoir has a new kayak launcher. If you want to go kayaking, just bring your boat registration to City Hall and get your free sticker. We are excited about other recreational improvements that we have planned for this year so stay tuned. The reservoir is a great place to take your family to.
The City of Willard will be honoring "Hometown Heroes" of our military starting the week of November 11, 2018 and continuing throughout 2019.

If you know a service man or woman that you would like to recognize who currently lives or has lived in Willard or the surrounding townships, please complete and return the following form with a picture.

MYRTLE AVENUE TREE PROJECT
In 2018, the Willard Tree Commission, appointed by City Council, began discussing tree replacement needs throughout the city. They concluded that the southern portion of Myrtle Avenue trees, located in the “boulevard”, needed to be replaced. The southern portion of Myrtle Avenue is often referred to as the gateway to our City, and with City Council’s blessing, the Tree Commission adopted the project to beautify the entrance. Find complete details under the Maintenance Department on this website. The Tree Commission currently has a vacancy for another member. The commission service is voluntary and interesting. If you are interested in this type of community service, please contact the City Manager’s office at 419-933-2591 for more details.
