- The City of Madison Food Policy Council announces the 2022 SEED Grants cycle to address food access issues in our community. SEED Grants are small grants designed to support new and recently emerging projects or programs that support access to healthy food in our community.
- The City of Madison Traffic Engineering Division is seeking qualified candidates to work part-time as a School Crossing Guard for the remainder of the school year. The position is an integral part of safe walking and biking to school.
- 2022 is off to a frigid start. It is important for home and business owners to protect their water pipes from freezing or bursting during our coldest time of year.
- That frigid weather leads to winter fun in our parks – check out ice skating, curling, and, yes, movies! The labyrinth, How Lovely Are Thy Branches, has opened at Olbrich Park.
- Huge thanks to Parks Conservation Resources Supervisor Paul Quinlan for leading an intrepid group of neighbors through a fascinating overview of conservation practices in Hoyt Park on Sunday afternoon. Want to get involved? Please join the Friends of Hoyt Park!
- Our snow plow drivers are amazing. And once in a while, they have some fun! Thanks to all of our drivers for keeping our streets plowed and sanded, and salted as appropriate.
