Pillage the Village is Saturday, August 20th!  So far the organizing committee (Village Board of Trustees volunteering their time) has had six meetings and the next organizational meeting is NEXT Wed., 7/27 @ 7PM at the Community Building.  If you are able to attend, please stop by!

Please remember to lock your vehicles and residences.  Keep all valuables out of sight or in your possession at all times!  Break Ins do occur.  If you notice suspicious people in the area, please don’t hesitate to contact the Cass Co Sheriff’s Department!

Kick ball teams and individuals are needed for the 2016 Pillage the Village Festival!  Yes, we have a few openings left!  Contact Mark Meyer immediately at 402.297.0262 for children’s division openings and Brenda Promes at 402.699.5510 for adult division openings!  We are still accepting Crafters, DSM Vendors and Flea Marketeers.  Contact Tim Glas at 515.402.7185.  Bike Owners, Car Owners and Truck Owners for the Car/Bike Show and Shine should also contact Tim at the number above.  We are also needing demonstrators throughout the day!  Dancers, musicians, singers, tumblers, martial artists etc are welcome as are Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, Explorer Posts etc.

If your 911 address is not clearly marked on your residence,  you need to get this accomplished immediately.  It is required by Village Ordinance.  If you need assistance in doing this, the Board will help.  Several homes still do not have this done!  Since it is an actual ordinance, you may be held responsible for this non-action!  In addition, several nuisance letters have been mailed.  A special hearing will be held on 7/18/2016 to discuss these letters only.

The Tornado Siren has been ordered!!!   We are hoping to have it by Pillage the Village in August.  A grant was received by the Village for landscaping.  A new sign has been ordered for the Community Center!  Look for it in the next month!

*****DID YOU KNOW???  The beautiful sign coming into town on the NW corner (The Spur) was donated by Brad and Colleen Harm????  It was a generous gift and it looks awesome!  Please take a moment to thank them the next time you see them!  Awesome people!  Fantastic gift.  It makes our Village look wonderful when people come into town.

*****DID YOU KNOW???  Tom Sorenson of the Manley Hide-a-Way bar got the alley behind the bar all nice and neat?  Thank Tom the next time you see him!!! 

Do you need to dig in your yard???  It is a Federal law that you must first call before you dig!!  Also, if you are planning to build, add to, remove, or move a structure, you must talk to Betty Meyer PRIOR to starting the project!  This includes fencing, shed, house, patio, garage and other structures.

Need a place to hold your next meeting, shower or seminar?  The Manley Community Building is for rent!  Downstairs/Kitchen (up to 25 people) is $50.  The whole building is $100.  For more info and to schedule an event, contact Jolene Dalton, Village Clerk at the office.
