TRASH NEWS


The rule for the trash pickup in Wynona is that the trash has to be bagged. This is not a new rule, it has been in effect all along. People are starting to just put loose trash in the polycarts and the trash truck crew will not pick it up. Polycarts should also be secured so that animals cannot tip them over causing trash to blow everywhere. Thanks for helping out with this!


WYNONA BOARD OF TRUSTEES SPECIAL MEETING


The Wynona Board of Trustees met for a special meeting on Sept. 28. The Board received three bids for painting the water tower on the inside and outside, Water Tower Maintenance, Family Construction and VENCO. Water Tower Maintenance was awarded the contract for painting the tower. While the tower is being painted, the water pressure might be a little lower than usual. This process might take up to four weeks in order to let the epoxy paint on the inside cure. Attending the meeting were Tonya Holt, Della Carter, Loretta Little, Johnnie Lott, Janet Delaney and Tennie Slone.


TRICK OR TREAT


Trick or Treating in Wynona will be from 6:30-8:30 p.m. Oct. 31. Those handing out treats should leave their porch lights on for all the ghosts and goblins! Speed limit in Wynona on all streets will be 25 mph.


FLAGS FOR


WYNONA


Della Carter is heading up a campaign to get flags for the poles on the side of the road in Wynona. She has been making and selling pies with the profits going to buy flag sets to hang on the poles. She is also accepting donations for anyone who wants to donate. This is a great cause and we all love and appreciate Della for loving our town enough to want the best for us with the United States flags. The flag sets are about $30 each and anyone who would like to donate for the flags can contact Wynona Town Hall.
