Office of the Mayor

Notes from Mayor Tatum


Greetings from the Mayor’s Office! It’s hard to believe school is already back in session and with that comes traffic in the Village. This should also serve as a reminder to be on the lookout for children walking to and from school, the crosswalks and about town for extracurricular activities. Also keep in mind during those peak minutes in the morning and evening traffic will be a bit more hectic for residents.


Blake Street residents have noticed significant activity and we are working with the water company to have them repair the street as soon as possible. Many thanks to all the residents for their patience during the project. It has been extremely inconvenient. Paving and sidewalk repair should be done shortly.


Even though summer is officially winding down there are still a number of activities to enjoy at the park and here in town. Make sure to visit, the Village and Fallfest social media pages for a full listing of our events!


If you want a printed copy you can visit city hall or our informational displays located on many of the facilities at the park.


As mentioned Fallfest is upon us and the dates for the festival this year are September 13th—16th and feature a little something for everyone.


The parade will be held on Thursday September the 14th and also creates congestion in the village, so make plans to travel accordingly.


Friday night we will feature country artists Chelsea Bain and Keith Anderson while Saturday night we will feature The Classic Rock All Stars with original members of: Blues Image, Blue Oyster Cult, Iron Butterfly, The Knack, YES, The Moody Blues, & Wings. You can also enjoy the car show, pancake breakfast, the return of Bluegrass Championship Wrestling, a kid-zone featuring inflatables, a Power Wheels derby, and Home Depot crafts with the kids. We hope you’ll join us for all of our events and bring a friend!


As always, we invite you to attend a council meeting, send us an email, a message via Facebook or a good old fashioned letter in the mail to let us know how we are doing! We meet the 1st and 3rd Tuesdays of the month at 7:30pm in the community center and you can email me directly at or find the village and me on Facebook! We look forward to hearing from you!


Progress continues!

Chris Tatum, Mayor
