Update: The Mayor and City Council Open House Set for Sunday, March 4th has been cancelled due to weather. No makeup date has been set yet.


UPDATE: HIGH WIND WARNING: The National Weather Service has now issued a High Wind Warning for our area from 3am to 7pm on Friday, March 2nd, with winds at 25 - 35 mph and gusts as high as 60 mph.

This poses a potential issue of power outages due to the wet ground from the rain, which means winds could bring down trees and tree limbs.

Have your mobile devices charged and ready. Also, be sure to go through your yards, patios and balconies and make sure any loose items are brought inside or secured, to ensure they don't fly around the neighborhood!

And travel will be difficult, especially for high profile vehicles, so drive with caution.

Be prepared and stay safe!
