• Public Works Director Nate Widell reported he has received some calls about freezing water lines. As of Jan. 23, the water temperature was 43.5 degrees. “We typically don’t recommend people run their water to prevent freezing until it gets below 38 degrees.” At that time, residents can get a discount for running a small stream of water. Residents should call City Hall or watch the social media page.
