Public Notice

To ensure a safe drinking water supply, Lake City Utilities will be adding chlorine to the water system from August 25th through August 31st.  The addition of chlorine to disinfect water can react with iron and/or manganese, creating a black or reddish discoloration, but does not cause a health concern. Citizens can let the water run a few minutes to flush faucets of discolored water before using for cooking or laundry. Use of chlorine can cause problems in fish tanks and commercial operations such as bait shops. It is recommended that these uses find an alternate source of water during this period or use commercially available chemicals that neutralize chlorine. Presence of chlorine will remain a few days following the treatment period.  Questions can be referred to Scott Jensen at 651-345-6850 or Mike Tucker at 651-380-0300.

Anytime Fitness Obstacle Course was a BIG Hit!

The children (and adults) who attended the obstacle course this Tuesday at the library had a great time with Jeff and Teri Bissonnette, owners of Anytime Fitness.  Even though the event was moved inside it didn’t dampen the children’s spirits!


Anytime Fitness brought balloons to mark each station and let some lucky children take them home!


Teri and Jeff from Anytime Fitness came to help us!


The parachute was a crowd favorite!


The kids really enjoyed the sack races


Part of the obstacle course was to throw bean bags through a hoop!


In this obstacle, children had to blow a pom pom through a maze with a straw.
