A sure sign that spring is in the air is when the snow birds return to the north. Welcome home to many of our local snow birds. It’s wonderful to see you back home.
As another sign of spring in the community, mark your calendar: Friday, May 3, is WEMIGA Waste Spring Clean Up Day for all Hillsboro residents. Now is the time to venture into the shed and garage, sort through all that excess stuff that piled up during the winter months. WEMIGA Waste will be hauling away your appliances, hot water heaters, bicycles, lawn mowers, metal items and such.
They will not be accpeting any oil, paint, TVs, computers, batteries, microwaves or tires.
If you have any questions about what items are acceptable or other concerns, please call Nancy at City Hall at 319-253-4465. Office hours are Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.
On Saturday, May 4, the City will be collecting tires from 8 to 10 a.m. behind the Hillsboro Community Center for all city residents. Remember WEMIGA Waste can’t haul away your tires, but the City will. There is a limit of eight tires per household.
Following the tire pick up, volunteers are needed to help pick up litter. So come one, come all to walk the town from 10 a.m. to noon and pick up trash along the streets and ditches within the Hillsboro city limits.
Lunch will be served to the volunteers who help make Hillsboro a clean and tidy town. What a great opportunity to earn volunteer time for all the youth working on silver cord hours.
The Hillsboro Public Library Board met April 10. Items on the agenda included: acquisitions, upgrades, usage and patron programs. Plans are being made for the 2013 summer reading program with a kick-off scheduled for June.
