Come to the City Hall or Community Center to pick up a book to read (no charge) or bring a book to share!!

June 21st is the next election.  If you are interested in helping the City by serving on the City Council please take out a petition on April 7th. 

Hi everyone,  it is starting to look at lot like spring.  Do you realize that in order to drive your golf carts on City streets you need to purchase a permit.  You will also need to show your license and proof of insurance as well.

Would you as City Residents be interested in tracking your water usage? Would you like to get Alerts if you have a water leak? We provide a free service that you can get by emailing or calling the City offices that will allow you to do just that.  It is called eyeonwater.
