Fund our sidewalks


Citizens of Coulee Dam, please plan on joining us the evening of Nov. 21 for a discussion concerning funding needed repairs of our town sidewalks. We will be meeting at the American Legion Hall in Electric City beginning at 6 p.m. This meeting will be open to all who are concerned about the condition of the town’s sidewalks and the safety of those who use them as we walk around our town. Council members are in the process of developing the 2017 budget, which must be finalized by Dec. 31.

Council meetings are scheduled for Nov. 9, Nov. 28, Dec. 14 and Dec. 28. By law, these council meetings are open to the public for observation of our town government in action. Historically, the mayor and council have allowed any concerned citizen to address the council before they begin their meeting.

The primary purpose of this Nov. 21 meeting is to discuss how we should organize ourselves to request funding our sidewalks at the Nov. 28 council meeting. It is important that we be well organized in order to make our funding request short, clear and precise without taking up an unreasonable amount of the council’s limited time. Please bring the positive, can-do attitude that led to the construction of a new school building and a new administration at our community hospital.

For more information, I can be reached at 633-1235 or via e-mail at
