Update on the Ambulance council.
At Tonights meeting there was a contract presented to the council from the negotiating commitee. Our goal was to have something to turn over to the board of supervisors for approval and then take back to our councils. Unfortunately it did not pass out of our board tonight.
What does this mean? It means we have some work to do to find a solution to the EMS issue in this county. This is not a unique issue to us but it is an issue we have to deal with now. I reccomended tonight and will continue to reccomend that we make EMS an essential service in our county and we allow taxation for it. If we do not do this now or at least start the process now then when?
It is a real possibility that on July ......

It looks like old man winter is about to arrive! Be careful out there this weekend! Remember to keep your vehicles off of the street if possible to avoid snow tickets.
The most common time for our crews to be out is after 2am when the snow is 2" or more. They usually go out and try to have everything cleared by morning. This weekend looks they may be out several times with the wind and the snow forecast so please be prepared. Do you best to keep those sidewalks clean!
Budget season is here so the council and all of the departments are busy preparing budgets and planning for the next years expense and all that goes with it. It takes a lot of careful planning and effort to keep everything running and make improvements at the ...

From the Mayor of Fredericksburg Iowa
It looks like it's finally here!! Harvest time that is. Even though I live in town like many of us do, please be aware of the farmers trying to get their crops out. Be cautious on the road, give them extra time and space. They are trying to make their living and we know it's been a tough a year for all of them.
Also be aware that just because you may live in town and maybe have never driven a tractor, or had your livelihood depend on this years yield, everything they are doing is affecting us in so many ways. Our community thrives on agriculture! Farmers buy gas, diesel, food, pay the bulk of the taxes and keep our small towns thriving. We have the Farmers Winn Co-op employing so many ......

Another wet week on tap for us here, it's about enough already! Remember to make sure those sump pumps are pumping the surface away from your house but not into the sanitary sewer, this causes major issues for your neighbors and our system, not to mention it's not legal!
Fall is in full swing and people are getting yards picked up and leaves raked, please remember you cannot blow your leaves and grass into the streets, it will plug our storm sewers and thus rain fall will not be able to get away!
Feel free to haul your yard waste to our yard waste site near the sewer plant but remember it is only for yard waste. Someone has been dumping other trash and that will lead to it being locked and controlled to limited hours of ...

Whats new Fredericksburg?
I think Spring is here? (Hopefully)
With spring in the air it's time to clean up those yards, plant the gardens and get to all those outdoor activities we have been waiting to get done.
Other Spring related topics, make sure if you are running a golf cart or UTV on the city streets that you are getting them registered and licensed at city hall. Failure to do so will result in a municipal infraction.
Also it is construction season, make sure that building permits are being filled out and turned in if you are adding on or changing the footprint of your building or adding a building to your property. This also includes prefab garages being moved onto your property. This year the city will not only review ...

Snow removal has been in full swing this past week, kuddos to the guys getting out early and getting it done before we have to hit the streets to get to work! Remember to keep you sidewalks clean so people can move around safely where possible.
Before you know it Park and Rec baseball and softball sign up will be here, be sure to watch for that in your kids school bags or announcements on facebook. Basketball has just finished up for them so on to the next! Toni and Amanda are always looking for new and exciting things for the youth to do, ...
