We would like to welcome to our City Commission residents Jaimie Schapker and Paul Chumbley. Jaimie will be our new commissioner of community outreach and Paul will be the public services commissioner. Thank you Matthew Tungate and Rick Rittenhouse are no longer serving as city commissioners but have devoted much time in service to our city and we would like to warmly thank them for their years of service.
WOULD YOU LIKE TO JOIN THE COMMISSION? Your city needs your talents. We currently have no one running for two of the commissioner positions this election. We will need two residents by the January meeting to join our commission for a one-year term. Please contact Mayor Jeff Magers or Clerk Shannon Tuthill if you would like more information.
Congratulations to Charles and Jennifer Folks, 7401 Keisler Way; Kimberly Labelle and Julianne Evers, 7502 Maria Avenue; Sam and Carolyn Scott, 2413 Tavener Drive; and Tom and Catherine Harper, 2301 Wesleyan Court, for having the best Halloween decorations.
For safety reasons, Bancroft is joining with many other small cities (including Graymoor-Devondale) in having Halloween on Tuesday evening to avoid the heavy rains expected on Wednesday evening. Please spread the word to your neighbors.
All Bancroft residents are encouraged to participate in the second annual Halloween decorating contest. Residents with the best house/yard decorations will receive a prize and see their spooky/cute/creative work featured on the Bancroft website. Judges will be walking the city Halloween night, and winners will be contacted and announced a few days after.
