Hello to all. Well summer has come to an end on the calendar and fall is here. The cooler temperatures are upon us and soon the leaves with be will be changing into their glorious fall blaze of color. Dust off those rakes and leaf blowers because soon those leaves will be falling to the ground. The leaf truck has been checked out and will be making the rounds soon.
Speaking of cleaning up, our annual fall clean will take place this year from October 19 thru 25. Once again the dumpsters will be located on Van Voast Avenue next to the city building parking lot. Tires will be accepted, please stack them alongside the dumpsters. We will not be able to accept paint or liquids this year. Should you have larger items please call 859-261-0260 to have them picked up by our public service department and leave a message for pickup. So clean out the basement, garage, or outside around the house before winter arrives. Please remember this is strictly a residential event.
Once again the annual “Art in the Park” event occurred on September 12at the beach park. Each year this event gets better and better. A large crowd was on hand but the weather was less than perfect this year. This event is not possible without the tremendous sea of volunteers who make this event run smoothly. A big hats off to all who donated their time to make Bellevue shine again this year. Great job and see you again next year. Later that evening we held our last concert in the park that was well attended also. Thanks to Mary Scott for putting together a great line up this year and thanks to our Public Services Department, Police and Fire Departments for helping out to make these events happen.
In Vue shopping events are still the talk of the shopping world. Our next shopping event will take place on November 6 with the “Giving Thanks”. So come on down and shop and dine, bring a canned good or other non-perishable food item to donate, and enjoy an evening of great fun on Fairfield Ave. Planning is also under way for this year Christmas walk along Fairfield coming up in November on the 28 and 29 those year. More details to follow.
Remember October is Fire prevention month so take time to check your smoke detectors in your home and your carbon monoxide detector for proper working order. Install new batteries or replace old units with new upgraded types. Take a few moments to do an in home safety check before the winter months set in. Also remember that daylights savings time will end on November 1st and set those clocks back 1 hour.
Once again if you are planning any last minute home repair projects around the house before winter sets in don’t hesitate to call the city staff about proper permits, COA’s, and inspections that may pertain.
We are always ready to help. 859-431-8888. Have a great fall season and Happy Halloween!
