photo of Ted ComiskeyI am pleased to bring greetings to you whether you are a visitor or a resident, I sincerely wish that you will take advantage of the welcoming atmosphere of our Town all year round. Our population of 11,000 allows us to maintain the small town atmosphere, while providing all services of larger municipalities.


During the winter season, enjoy walking through our parks and take in the award winning "Festival of Lights". In the course of the summer months our Parks & Recreation department and Communities in Bloom committee have wonderful garden displays throughout our town and while you are on our main street, take in lunch and visit some unique shops.
