Attica will certainly be the place to be this year. May is always busy with graduation, Memorial Day, The Indy 500, and the Doggie Dash, just to name a few.
Once again there will be a Twilight Music Series this summer on the third Sunday of each month at McDonald Park. Cindy Mason is lining up some great talent and adding a couple of twists. It’s a great time for our whole community.
June will bring a Day of Gardens and Art on June 16th, Twilight Music on June 17th and our Community Celebration on June 30th. We will once again end that day with fireworks at the high school.
Now that it has finally warmed up I would like to remind everyone to be mindful of city ordinances. These are put in place to keep our city one that we can all be proud of.
Feeling blue? Sometimes when driving down the street and we see blue trash cans lining the street it’s due to being trash day. Other times we may be driving down the same street 2 days later and still see several trash containers. Our ordinance states that trash containers may be taken to the curb after noon the day before trash pickup and are to be returned to your residence by noon the day after.
Wrong Way: When you park facing the wrong way on the left side of the street. That is a parking violation. You had to drive on the wrong side of the road in order to park.
Those are 2 of the biggest complaints I receive but also remember that it’s important to keep our properties in good shape whether it be mowing or simply keeping trash picked up. Please help us keep our city beautiful. If you have any questions regarding ordinances my number is 765-762-2478. Please leave a message and I’ll get back to you.
Last year we were able to complete $116,250 in road repairs thanks to the Community Crossing grant from INDOT. This year we will resurface Union Street from Lithia to Jackson, Foster Drive, Oak Street, and finish the lower section of Sycamore Street. We also plan to add a sidewalk on Oak St from Monroe to Washington. This will improve the walkability for students and citizens alike.
In closing I want to thank you for your time and your help. By working together, Attica is the Place to BE.
Mayor, City of Attica
