Canton plans for big “Day Off”

Fri, Feb 21st, 2014
Posted in Canton Government

Every five years Canton’s “Day Off” explodes into a three day celebration that consumes the entire town. “It’s going to be big,” said Acting Mayor Cindy Shanks at the February 12 Canton City Council meeting as she went over the plans already well in the works for this year’s big celebration.

This year’s Canton “Day Off” celebration is planned for August 15-17. Festivities include a Raiders Prom, complete with Grand March, on Friday night, and the Raiders Dash, a 5K Run/Walk planned for Saturday. The weekend’s activities will also include an all school reunion, softball tournament, BBQ/chili cook-offs, a beer tent, semi show and tractor ride, kids’ games, live bands, dances and fireworks. The parade will take place on Saturday at 3 p.m.

Water Temperatures

Also up for discussion was the recent concern about water temperatures and whether Canton residents should be running water to prevent pipes from freezing. City Engineer Jon Nordsving stated that he has been regularly checking the water temperatures in different locations around town. As of the February City Council meeting he had only found one instance of tap water at the danger point of 40 degrees. He will continue to monitor the water temperatures around town and stated that Canton residents with concerns can contact him to check their water.

In other Council business

A rate increase for the municipal work of City Attorney Richard Nethercut was approved.

Discussion about the new EPA rules for back-up generators and the decision of whether to “Opt-In” or “Opt-Out” of the Tri-County Electric Peak Alert program was tabled until the next meeting.

Progress on the old liquor store building was at a temporary standstill pending better weather. The interior walls had been removed, but the floor and ceiling were revealed to need a lot of work. Warmer temperatures are needed for further evaluation to take place to plan the next steps.

Due to a member’s medical leave, the next meeting of the Canton City Council was changed to Tuesday, March 11, at 7 p.m.
