It’s been another very busy month in the City of Dayton. Homeowners will be happy to know the city has signed a new contract with Republic Services (CSI) that will lower this year’s waste collection on your tax bill from $168 per unit to $128.16.
Work has started on the reconstruction of the City of Dayton’s website to make it more user-friendly and inviting. We also continue to work on updating or amending our city ordinances, which have been outdated for far too long.
It’s always good to tell you about special events taking place in our city. Parents (and maybe some kids as well) are looking forward to the first day back at school on Wednesday, August 17. Senior Citizens will be gathering on Wednesday, September. 14, when the city hosts its annual Senior Citizen Day at the VFW Hall, and the Dayton Civic Club is already gearing up for its 2nd Annual Kite Festival on Saturday, October 1 at Gil Lynn Park.
For any citizens who may have an interest in the City Council’s discussion about turning Berry Street, between Sixth and Seventh Avenues, into a two-way street, there will be a second reading of the proposal during the September 6 council meeting.
