Friday Greetings,

The 2018-2019 Tree Planting Program is underway. Based on the bid submitted by our contractor, Sunset Landscapes, we will be able to plant 98 trees this year.  We are planting 88 trees this week and we will plant another 10 in March.  Trees being planted include five different types of Maple trees, all of which have different vibrant fall colors.  This year we are experimenting with planting Saucer Magnolia trees, which grow to only 25’ – 30’ in height and will be planted in areas that have overhead utility lines.   We also are planting bald cypress trees, which grow well in NKC’s silty soil.

The Candy Cane 5k (formally the Christmas Light Run 5k) will be Saturday, December 8. The race begins near City Hall at 5:30 p.m. and closures will include parts of Armour Rd & Swift. For more information about the course visit: https://www.mapmyrun.com/routes/view/2231524063.  Please plan your travels accordingly and be cautious of race participants and volunteers.  

There will be a Special Council Meeting on Monday, December 10 at City Hall in the Police Community Room beginning at 6 p.m.
