Have you heard about the new Michigan law that impacts local governments' communications with their citizens regarding local ballot questions?  This is something we all need to be aware of, and we welcome your input on the issue.  The next council meeting will be Monday, February 1st, at 7:00 p.m. in City Hall's Curtis J. Brackett Council Chambers; please feel free to share your thoughts on the matter with our City Council.
Spring Planting Program I
It's time to get growing on this year's Spring Planting Program!  City residents:  Place a tax-deductible order to have a tree planted in your boulevard, or, purchase one to plant in your yard.  Order forms in print are available at City Hall.  Completed forms must be submitted by Friday, February 12th for priority of tree type requests.  Read the new and beautifully-written article, by our own local forester Otto Jacob, on planting and caring for newly-planted trees.  Keep an eye out for a second article, coming soon.

Next summer, we'll celebrate the City of Norway's 125th birthday--in a big way.  We're  currently seeking sponsors and volunteers to help our community's Norway125 event meet its remarkable potential. 

Are you a business owner, another type of community leader, or a dedicated resident?  Please view Norway125's sponsorship packet.

Do you want to help in a hands-on way?  Let us know you'd love to get an inside view and become a volunteer!  Visit Norway125's website.

Norway125 needs volunteers to make this four-day festival THE event of our region next summer.  We could create a celebration like Norway has never seen--let's make it happen!  View volunteering options and join the sign-up list here.   *Please note:  If you have already signed up to volunteer, but have not yet heard from the committee, thank you for signing  up, and you soon will.  The committee's next meeting will be Wednesday, January 6th, at 6:00 p.m. in City Hall's Conference Room B downstairs.  Those who have signed up, and those who are interested in getting involved, are encouraged to attend and get a feel for the committee's next steps.
Almost done with high school?
It takes a village--and then some.  Keep in mind that for those young adults graduating from Norway Vulcan Schools, there may be local, state, and/or federal resources available to minimize financial barriers to higher education.

What and Where to Recycle

Our compost site, for use by City residents, is located at the Waste Water Treatment Plant (WWTP) just off US 8, south of Danielson’s Greenhouse (the physical address is N1700 US Highway 8). Compost items include grass clippings, leaves, and brush; drop off these items daily, at no charge.  

We have a recycling container, also for use by City residents, located at the Department of Public Works (DPW; 400 Tenth Avenue).  Recycle paper, #1 and #2 plastics, and tin cans.  We have two dumpsters for scrap iron.  We do not take cardboard.  Recycle daily at no charge; scrap iron must be dropped off during normal hours of operation (non-holiday weekdays from 7:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.).                                          

Residents of any city or township in Dickinson County may bring used oil and batteries to the Dickinson County Solid Waste Processing Facility (Great American Disposal) in Quinnesec (W7702 US 2), at no charge.  They collect tires for a fee according to size.  They’re open Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., and Saturday from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. (noon).  On questionable items, call 774-5680 first.  For more information, link to http://greatamericandisposal.com/recycle-center/.
