  Latest Announcements: 

City of Horace website re-launch
Work has begun to overhaul the current City of Horace website.  The city has hired a web hosting company Civic Plus to assist in the design and initial setup.  This new website will give residents MANY new features that will make it easier to connect and request city services.  One request we have heard is online utility bill-pay support and resident notification of events using a service called "Notify Me". 

The new City of Horace website is targeted to launch March 1, 2017.  Look for more updates and ways to send your suggestions.  If you have an idea to consider for the new website, send your idea on the "Contact Us" page of this site.

Snow Removal Reminder
The City of Horace employees have worked very hard over the past few days to keep streets open for residents and dropping sand in slippery spots first.  Their first priority is to open main roads and then work to side streets.  City ordinance 2-0121 says that residents are responsible for keep sidewalks open.  The Fire Department also requests that residents remove snow around fire hydrants in your area to help protect your residence and neighborhood. 

DO NOT push snow into the street and expect the city crews to remove it.  Ordinance 13-0506 explicitly forbids this practice.  This has caused delays in opening many neighborhood streets.  If you push snow across the street into a neighbors yard, it is YOUR responsibility to ask permission before using their yard for snow disposal.  The city cannot pick up this snow for removal.  Be KIND and RESPECT your neighbors.  Make sure to push completely off the street and clean up snow trails to leave the road clear.

The city also works to remove snow and keep centralized mail boxes accessible to postal delivery staff that are accessible from the street.  The centralized mail boxes that are accessible from sidewalks must be cleared by residents.  Residents should also make sure that letter carriers can easily access their residence mail box if the snow builds up around the box.  Failure to keep the mailbox accessible will result in mail not being delivered.

Parking is restricted on city streets according to ordinance 13-1606.  This is especially true during a snow event.  This has been problematic in areas of town with narrow streets.  Residents are reminded to NOT park on streets to speed snow removal even during the day. 

Christmas Tree removal will take place over the next week.  Place trees on the curb and city employees will pick up for disposal.
