PUBLIC HEARING NOTICE
March 19, 2018 at 7:00 P.M.
For the past months the City Council has been studying the highly used sidewalk routes that children take to school (see map below). Many property owners diligently shovel their sidewalks so the children do not have to walk in the street. Some property owners do not. The City Charter, as passed by the voters of Reed City in 1957, clearly states in Chapter 2 Section 2.2,
(v) The compelling of owners of real property within the city to keep sidewalks abutting upon their property clear from snow, ice or other obstructions, and if the owner fails to comply with such requirements, to remove such snow, ice or other obstructions and assess the cost thereof against the abutting property in accordance with Section 11.9;
Before setting a policy for the winter of 2018-19 the City Council wanted to hear the comments from the residents before designating the safe sidewalk routes to school policy and directed that a Public Hearing on the question be set for March 19th at the City Hall in the City Council chambers starting at 7:00pm.

Osceola County was named after Seminole Indian warrior Chief Osceola. The first white settler to the area was Nathan Hersey, a fur trapper, who arrived in 1840 and settled near the town and river that still bears his name.
Reed City was plotted in 1870. Its first school was opened in 1872. By the late 1890s and early 1900s, the village had a population of about 2,690, and it officially became a city in 1933.
Notable residents of Reed City include Thomas Schall, U.S. Senator from Minnesota, and George Bennard, American hymn composer and preacher best known for composing the famous hymn, "The Old Rugged Cross".
