Here Comes Fall!!!

The air is different. The tomato plants are changing to a different production mode. School has started. Shore birds are migrating with more urgency through our marsh. I can hear thumps and grunts coming from the football field 2 blocks away. It is cool in the mornings. Doves are starting to gather for their annual exodus with the first cold snap. White-tailed fawns are starting to lose their spots. Change is here.

The Ellinwood City Council will meet Monday evening at 7 p.m. at the city office for a special meeting to discuss the reestablishment of a Neighborhood Revitalization Plan.

Formulas were created for required investment and improvement in order to receive tax rebates. The 2010 plan terminated Dec. 31, 2014. The new plan to be presented will essentially be the same form as the 2010 plan, according to City Manager Bud Newberry.
