Items include equipment and tools for first responders, first aid supplies, and personal hygiene items. Last week, he collected enough items to fill five trucks with first aid kits and baby supplies, totaling 18 pallets. Now he's working on another shipment.

~ On Tuesday, April 19, the City Council will resume in-person meetings. Meetings will still be broadcast on KGEM and streamed on YouTube. Comments may be submitted by email (and will be distributed to council members but will not be read aloud) or using the audio feature - no video - on Zoom.
