What's new Fredericksburg? 
The Holidays are upon us and the cold weather is moving in! It seems the sinus problems and coughing is coming in as well, go see Dr. Brinkman for a cure! With Christmas right around the corner it is time to get your shopping done, Hardware Hub is a great place to start with many new things in the Kelly's Korner section, go check it out. I can't impress upon people enough to shop local as much as they can, it is so important to our community. I can not imagine what it would be like without a grocery store right here in town. I think I am in there 4-5 times a week! 
What else is new? Brad Schoonover presided over Decembers meeting in my absence, it was also his last meeting as a councilmen, he will be greatly missed as he brought a lot to the table and was always well prepared. Thanks Brad for all of your hard work! 
We are getting the street sweeping wrapped up for the year and getting plows ready to go. Don't forget to get those sidewalks cleaned off in a timely fashion and move those cars off of the street if it is going to snow more than 2". 
Just a reminder that if you have garbage that will not fit in your container you must buy a sticker for it at city hall. If the does not close on your container any excess garbage will not be picked up. 
Next month we will have a new council person, Doreen Cook, please help us welcome her to the council. January also starts budget season for us, so many nights will be spent meeting in committee and prioritizing projects for the upcoming fiscal year 18-19. 
As always if you have any concerns get a hold of me, we are here to help!

Have a Merry Christmas and enjoy this time with your friends and family!
