Businesses, register for Halloween Safe Night!
Registration is now open for businesses to sign up for a table at our Halloween Safe Night event, which is scheduled for Monday, October 31, at 5:30 p.m. at the Community Center. 

Each business/organization will have an 8-foot table to decorate in Halloween fashion and hand candy out to the children. Past attendance, including adults, has been between 1,700 and 1,900 people, so we would recommend being prepared with at least 2,000 pieces of candy.

For more information, please contact Mitch Beaumont at City Hall, 402-331-4343.
