Marigold Days is Coming

August 12, 2015

This past weekend was Festival in the park in Kasson. I saw many of our neighbors at the events during the weekend including the parade and water wars at the FD on Sunday. It was good to see that many of us choose to celebrate with our neighbor city. Congratulation Kasson on your 150th year celebration.

Mantorville has the next big celebration coming up next month. We are going to be celebrating our 50th Marigold Days event this year and have many “extra” events planned. I am very excited about the event this year and I hope everyone plans to attend at least some portion of the weekend. Marigold Days this year will be September 12 and 13.

The Mantorville Economic Development Authority (EDA) has made it's selection for this years past and present GEM. Come down to our announcement this year and help recognize this years recipient for their dedication and service to our community. Refer to the Marigold Days Web site for complete details and listings of events. (marigolddays.com)

The city had about 20 applications for our open position for the City Works department. I wanted to thank everyone that applied, we had several great applicants and narrowing down the few individuals to interview was a challenging task. Thank you again for all that took the time to fill out an application.

Yours in service,

Chuck Bradford, Mayor - City of Mantorville
