Welcome to the Official Homepage for the "City to the Sunset"
The Budget was presented to the Committee on April13th and additional discussions will occur regarding budget priorities. At the April 27 meeting priorities for closing the budget will be considered. This meeting is open to the public and comments are welcome in advance and at the meeting. Due to limited revenues and rising expenses it is anticipated some services will be reduced this year. Changes may include closing City Hall of Fridays or in the afternoon, reducing part-time staff hours in all departments, eliminating a 1% COLA and other consultant services.

2014-2015 Library Raffle Quilt
Many thanks to Westside Quilters Guild members for their generous donation of this colorful quilt for the Library to raffle as a fundraiser. Tickets are now on sale and will be sold throughout the coming year until the winning ticket is drawn at the annual Elephant Garlic Festival in August. Each ticket is $1, or 6 tickets will be issued for $5. This beautiful quilt utilizes a non-traditional pinwheel design. Rather than incorporating traditional half-square triangles, each of the four arms of every pinwheel in this quilt is in the shape of a trapezoid. Each block features a different, brightly colored pinwheel on a white patterned background, and the entire piece is machine-quilted. It measures six feet square. Half of the backing is in a Kelly green pattern, while the other half is a floral print; a row of pinwheels has been included down the middle of the reverse side. This quilt will be continuously on display in the Library for the next eight months.
