Watch for Rink Closures
Watch here for rink closures. When there is snow fall after 3 pm, it is likely warming houses will not be open because public works crews will not be able to clear rinks. Regular shoveling causes damage to rinks so is discouraged.

The Planning Commission meets the first Tuesday of the month at 7 pm. A tentative second meeting is scheduled for the third Tuesday as needed.
There are openings on the city park commission. The Park Commission serves as an advisory commission to the City Council on park and park programming issues. The Park Commission meets at 7 p.m. on the second Tuesday of the month.
