Football Team Volunteers Time and Muscles

As the Lake City Public Library gets ready to open at their temporary location on 7th Street, there were MANY boxes to be moved.  The Lake City Tigers Football Team lent a hand by helping move some of these boxes of books/DVDs/audiobooks.


Thanks Guys!

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.
