I hope everyone in our community is having a wonderful Fall and enjoying all the beautiful colors this season has to offer. This month I want to give a heartfelt “Thank You!” to the City’s employees. Our Public Works Department and City Hall staff take pride in serving our community. My heartfelt thanks go out publicly to these diligent and professional individuals who have been a blessing to work with. If you have an opportunity to thank a City employee, please do. They are your family, friends, and neighbors!


On the subject of employees, The City is pleased to welcome Victor Egbert as our new maintenance crew member, Olivia Bottini as our Deputy Clerk, and Samuel Collins as our Office Administrative Staff member. (For those who are wondering, Sabrina is not going anywhere)


The Public works Department employees have been prepping for winter by getting equipment ready for sanding and plowing while also buttoning up some of our open projects. Just a reminder: Winter parking for trailers/campers/boats/cars is available to City patrons at the back parking lot of the City Park. A permit is needed and it is free! You can pick up a permit by visiting City Hall, but let’s all hope Old Man Winter stays away as long as possible! (Unfortunately, we all know it is only a matter of time before the snow hits and stays).


Don’t forget to mark your calendars for this year’s 2nd Annual Christmas Fest at the park. It will be held on Dec 3rd from 4 PM to 7 PM. I look forward to seeing you there! In the meantime, I hope you all take some time to enjoy the beauty fall has to offer before winter sets in. I know I will. As always, it is a pleasure and honor to serve as your mayor, and thank you all for everything you do to make Troy a great city to live in!

Mayor Steve Corr

 

To all those who have served, and those who continue to serve, Happy Veteran's Day. Our city, our state, and our country’s greatness is built on the foundation of your courage and sacrifice. Thank you to all members of our military, in all branches, past and present.


“Every day, in local arenas all the way to the White House, adults sit around and decide what problems youth have and what youth need, without ever consulting us.” Jason Warren,New York City Youth Force

We are excited to introduce the Troy Mayor's Youth Advisory Council (MYAC) to our community.


The purpose of the MYAC is to give young people the tools, training, and trust to apply their creativity and energy to effect change in their own lives and in the future of their neighborhoods, communities, cities, and states. This volunteer opportunity is open to teens Grades 9 - 12 and the City is currently accepting applications.


Are you interested in having your voice heard in local government? If so, then the Troy Mayor’s Youth Advisory Council is the place for you. MYAC members participate in leadership activities, community service projects, and social events designed to help shape the Troy youth community. MYAC provides participants with the necessary skills, experience, and confidence to succeed and exceed in the future.

Winter is just around the corner. Please remember to remove trailers, parked cars and other items from the side of the streets to allow for plowing once the snow arrives.

LIBRARY NEWS

It is already November, a great time to snuggle up to the fire with a good book. Stop by the library, get some books, and then go into full cozy mode. We have some fun things happening this month at the Troy Community Library.


Rosalie Spielman, author of cozy murder mysteries, will be doing a reading at the library on November 21st, 7:00-8:00 pm. Rosalie grew up in Latah County; stop by the library on November 21st for a cozy evening with the author and to find out if the fictional town of New Oslo, from her novel Welcome Home to Murder, was inspired by any local hamlets.

The November STEAM Take-away Activity is straw rockets. The STEAM activity will be available starting on November 16th. These activities are geared towards elementary-age kiddos. Supplies are limited, to-go activities are given out on a first-come, first-served basis.
