The City of Willard to host its 2nd Annual Community Yard Sale
With spring right around the corner it is the perfect time to start thinking about gathering surplus or unwanted items around your house for Willard’s Second Annual Community Yard Sale. The community-wide event will take place Thursday, May 17 through Saturday, May 19. Sale hours are Thursday and Friday 9 am to 5 pm, and Saturday 9 am to 1 pm.
Participants are asked to sign up at Willard City Hall by May 4th in order for your yard sale to be listed and made available through the city’s website and Facebook pages. There is a nominal listing fee of $3 dollars, which will help cover general advertising for the event. (Remaining proceeds to be given to the Willard Food Bank).
Out-of-town guests wishing to participate in selling items may set up downtown at the Doster Plaza on Saturday, May 19 from 8 am to 2 pm. The cost for a 10’ x 15’ space at the Doster Plaza is $5 per spot (one parking spot). This space does not include electric or tables. Out-of-town guests should also register at Willard City Hall by May 4th.
Yard/garage sales officially listed during this event will not count towards one of the three allowed by city ordinance and will not need a permit. We would also like to remind residents that all sale signs during this event, and throughout the year, may not be placed in the right-of-way, attached to any utility pole, and should be removed in a timely manner after the sale is over.
For more information regarding this press release, please call City Service Desk at 419-933-2581.
OFFICIAL FLAG FLYING DAY
Mon. February 19~President's Day
It has been several years since Willard has experienced a Winter season like the current one. The nearly continuous cycle of cold and snowy conditions will certainly cause us to appreciate the warmer weather that will surely follow.
I am pleased at the dedication and perseverance of the maintenance and safety forces, as they respond to the calls and hazardous conditions, in order to provide all of us with basic services.
AND, here is where we still need help. When snow accumulates to three inches, or more, certain streets require that all vehicles must be removed to permit the plowing of the streets. These streets are all clearly marked with signage to that affect.
If vehicles are not moved, our forces are, unnecessarily required to maneuver around each vehicle, risking incident, and not able to clean the streets, as you would want us to, and the additional time required to plow around obstacles slows the cleaning process, significantly.
Ticketing these vehicles is a distasteful option that we prefer to avoid, and so we appeal for your HELP. Help us help you and our community. When snow accumulates, please move your vehicles so that we can clear your street.
BRUSH & COMPOST
The compost area is now open during our normal business hours, Monday through Friday, 7 am to 3 pm. Please call the Maintenance Department at 419-933-7531 with any questions. This will be for City residents only. No commercial dumping.
