Ashley Community Committee meets this Thursday night at 6 pm and welcomes new members.

City Council meeting November 16 at 7 pm at City Hall. If your street lights are out please call Erika at city hall 485-2270.

Last week a Ashley resident was contacted by someone in regards to their water bill and was told if they did not pay a certain amount of money their water would be turned off. This was a scam and if you receive a phone call please contact the Sheriff’s office immediately.

Here it is November 9 and my roses are still in bloom. I wish we had weather like this year round. But you know what the old saying is, if you don’t like the Illinois weather stick around it will change. I like snow but really only want to see snow for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day then we can go back to the beautiful weather we have been having.

Have a fantastic week. If you have news or questions feel free to call me.
