Pay your Barnsdall utility bill from home

Week of Sept. 1-7

Welcome to September! August provided us with several warm days, as the heat index climbed to the triple digits this past week. It looks like we will have some relief from the heat this week as we move closer to the 90s in temperatures. Because it is the first of the month, Barnsdall is busy with regularly scheduled meetings throughout town. 

The American Legion will meet Thursday, Sept. 2, at 6 p.m. for their regularly scheduled monthly meeting. All American Legion meetings are held downtown at the American Legion Building.

Barnsdall Students will enjoy a three-day weekend, as they have no scheduled school on Labor Day, Monday, Sept. 6. 

The Barnsdall City Council will meet Tuesday, Sept. 7 at 5:30 p.m. for its regularly scheduled monthly meeting. All City Council meetings are held at City Hall.
