Spring brings renewal and the city is experiencing a resurgence. We have a large number of building permits for projects large and small throughout the city. It is exciting to see the investments people are making in their homes, as well as in our business community. We cannot wait to see these projects when they are complete.

The common council approved seasonal overnight parking that is effective April 15 through November 1st of each year. This is for registered and insured 2-axle non-commercial passenger vehicles and motorcycles, but a vehicle cannot stand for 48-hours straight in one spot. Overnight parking is only allowed in areas that currently allow parking, except for the following locations: a. Main Street/East Avenue from Transit to Washburn Street b. Walnut Street from Transit to Washburn Street c. West Genesee Street and West Avenue from the city line to Transit. The City Streets department may limit parking when street cleaning, infrastructure projects, or paving is occurring as notified in public notices.

Spring also means spring cleaning.
