Friday Greetings,

In response to the global Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis, on Tuesday, August 17, the City Council voted to extend Mayor DeLong's mask order until 12:01 a.m. on Saturday, September 25, 2021.  For more information, visit www.nkc.org/coronavirus. 

Brandon Koster will start in the Fire Department on Monday, August 23 as a Firefighter/EMT.  Welcome aboard!

There will be a City Council Special Meeting on Tuesday, August 24.  The Agenda will include an item to address emergency repairs to a storm drain collapse on Armour Road, along with an Executive Session item.

Holy Cow, NKC Fire Department!  Yesterday afternoon, a cattle truck came off the road while exiting the interstate onto 16th Avenue.  The driver called into dispatch for help not only with the vehicle but with a request to help cool off his livestock while they waited for tow assistance. Great job to NKCFD for providing some much-needed heat relief to our cattle visitors during their stay in NKC. 

Parks & Recreation invites you to celebrate the new school year next Saturday, August 28 beginning at 7 p.m. at Macken Park! Get your snack on with hotdogs and chips, make a craft, check out NKC Fire's Ladder Truck and Ambulance, and get your Back-to-School picture taken at our photo op! Then stay to watch Raya and the Last Dragon at dusk. The first 50 kids will receive a giveaway from McConnell & Associates. 

Help for local families struggling financially due to the COVID-19 pandemic is available through a program being administered by Clay County.
