City of New Strawn-City Hall


   Upcoming Events .

City Wide Garage Sales

City-wide garage sales will be held on Saturday, August 2nd in conjunction with Burlington's city-wide sales.  Cost to have your sale placed on the map will be $5.00 this year, but the Burlington Recreation Commission will be advertising quite heavily and will promote the fact that this will be a large event encompassing two communities.  The deadline for signing up will be July 21 and you may do so at City Hall.  This should be a great opportunity to get rid of some of that 'clutter' around the house!  Don't miss out!!

City Hall will be closed on July 4th in observance of Independence Day


The City will be sponsoring a fireworks display on July 5, 2014, at the City Lake & Park.  Stay tuned for more details!!


The old tennis court at Jones Park is being renovated and will soon be a new horseshoe court.  City employees Ron Parkey and Steven Dwight are working on the project and it is nearing completion.  The tennis court concrete was left in place and 3' x 4' openings were cut to make the pits.  Builder's Choice Concrete furnished the sand for the pits, so a big THANK YOU to them!  Backstops will, of course, be built, foul lines will eventually be painted and seating for participants and spectators will be added as well.  If you love horseshoes, be sure and check it out!!

NSCIO will once again be selling fireworks at the Community Building as a money making project.  Sales will begin on June 27 and run through July 4.  Volunteers to help set up the fireworks and to operate the stand are needed.  Please get in touch with an NSCIO board member to offer your services, or call City Hall for more details.  NSCIO does soooo much for the City of New Strawn, such as the annual Halloween Party/Hay Rack Ride and the Easter Egg Hunt. The fireworks sales is their big money making project for the year, so please come out and support them!
