 I received a letter from Ameren letting us know that they will be upgrading and replacing electric and gas meters in town this summer. Here is how it will work…. Each household in Chillicothe will receive a notification from Ameren letting you know when they plan on replacing your meters. There will be a separate visit to replace each of the two meters. When they arrive to replace one of the meters, they will knock on your door and show you an Ameren ID badge. There will be a brief interruption in your gas/electrical serve and the installation should take about 15 minutes. Just an FYI….

 The City of Chillicothe has an incentive program that seems to be underutilized by our residents – the “Sidewalk Program”. If you would like to install a sidewalk in front of your property, or replace the one you have, the City will pay 80% of the costs, up to $1,000. To apply, just stop by City Hall and pick up an application and a list of approved concrete contractors. This is a first come/first serve program. Once the budgeted amount of $20,000 is spent, the program ends for the year. Take advantage!

 Later this summer, the City will be flushing fire hydrants around town. Once I know the schedule, I will let you know.

 We have numerous business development opportunities in the works. Our goal is to fill vacant properties, increase property value and taxes, and to generate more sales tax for the City. More to come as these opportunities come to fruition…. 

 Independence Day is on the way. The Fourth of July Committee is having a golf cart run on June 23rd as a fundraiser. And, you’ll see fundraiser canisters in businesses all around town. Please support his cause! Again this year, the fireworks will on the 4th at Three Sisters Park. It’s a great show; be there and support the event!

 As soon as one year’s firework are over, the fund raiser process begins all over again for the next year. And so, on July 8, there is a fundraiser at the Casting Club – “Red, White, and Blues”. It will be a blues fest with music, food and drinks, a 50/50, and kids games and activities. It starts at 1:00; be there!

 That’s all for this time. See you around town!

 

Don
