Reflections from Watertown Mayor Mike Jennings

I hope that each of you, and your families, had a very Happy New Year and are looking forward to 2018. It just seems like yesterday that I was doing my “New Year’s Message” for 2017. Go to https://låån-utan-uc-och-kreditprövning/.

Because of the holidays, there is not a lot to report to you at this time.  Our next Watertown City Council meeting will be on Tuesday, January 16 at 6 p.m. As always, you are invited to attend and participate.

Our youth basketball league games will begin in earnest very soon and Bob Morgan reminded me yesterday that we will begin community league sign-ups for baseball, softball, and T-ball the last two weeks of January and into February. I hope that you will take advantage to the opportunities to participate in both our basketball and community league baseball and softball programs.

One thing I did not notice much of over New Year’s holiday was the sounds of fireworks. I suspect that single digit temperatures, with sub-zero wind chills, had a lot to do with that.

I hope that you will notice that the work of the city does not slow down, or go away, because of frigid temperatures. Our street employees were called out on Christmas Eve afternoon to repair a water leak, and I suspect this won’t be the last one. Cold weather can be extremely hard on our water and sewer lines, as they have been in the ground for decades, and we try to keep a close eye around town for potential leaks.

I noticed this morning the sign for the Watertown Volunteer Fire Department Fish Fry for this Saturday is up. That is a great opportunity to get over to the Public Safety Building and get a “to go plate” to watch the Titans play Kansas City in the playoffs late Saturday afternoon. And the Tennessee Volunteers will be playing Kentucky on television later that evening.

So, welcome to 2018! Please do your best to stay warm and together we will get through this. Spring is right around the corner!

Thank you for the opportunity to serve as your mayor. I look forward to continuing to work with the Watertown City Council and the great people of our community to work to make our community the best it can possibly be.As always, if you have any questions, comments, or suggestions please me me or any member of the city council now.
