October 2015 Newsletter

2015October Need a Structure Torn Down?
The City of Oswego will be going out for bids on some demolition projects shortly after the first of the year. If you too have a structure that needs to be torn down, you could save money by having your demolition project done at the same time, by the same contrac-tor. Contractors usually give better rates per square foot when there is more than one structure to tear down. Property owners would have to agree to the demolition being done when the contractor does the demos for the city in order to receive the dis-counted rate. Since bids will not go out until after the first of the year, we wanted to let people know now so they have time to consider their options, ask questions and make arrange-ments. If you are inter-ested, please speak to City Clerk Carol Edding-ton at 620-795-4433. Read full newsletter here.

2015August Oswego Spruce-up Challenge
Check out the new sign at Schmoker Park! The Oswego Chamber of Commerce and the City had challenged homeowners to add some curb appeal by sponsoring a contest. Different types of entries included painting the house, replacing the roof, improving the yard and updating landscap-ing. It was a difficult decision but, the Chamber’s selective committee voted on the entries and the winner is Jennifer Winters. She added a new roof, new guttering, addition and all new landscaping. Beautiful! Ben and Toni Coppock were the run-ner up of the spruce up challenge. They painted the house and the garage. They also installed new windows and storm door. What a difference! Thank you to all who took the time to enter our contest but mostly Thank You for taking pride in your property and it’s appearance! Read the full newsletter here.
