Little bit of this, little bit of that

I often come across little snippets that are just too short for a full post here, but still are things worth spreading the word on. Today's post is a compilation of some of these announcements.

The Green County Humane Society is featuring special pricing on all cats and kittens in the months of March and April. Kittens up to one year old can adopted during this time at the price of two for $63. One kitten is available for $32. Two adult cats can be adopted for $30, or one adult cat for $15. As with all pets from the Green County Humane Society, the pets are checked are vets and are up to date on all necessary shots. Visit the Green County Humane Society website for more information.

As a class project for the Green County Leaders program, some area residents are doing a survey on Community Networking. Please help out by filling out the survey. It takes just a minute. Community Networking Survey

The streetscaping project in Downtown Monroe will be starting as the weather begins to warm up. If you have not had the opportunity to see plans, visit the Monroe Main Street website and view the documents in the design gallery. There will likely be a little inconvenience for us all during the construction, but the project will take care of some much needed underground repairs while at the same time improving the flow and appearance of our downtown area. I for one am very excited about it and can't wait to see the finished project.

The City of Monroe has canceled Spring Clean Up days this year to increased costs. Never fear - there are options for getting those unwanted items out of your home! Consider posting on the Green County Freecycle list anything that is in usable condition, wood or other building supplies, or metal and other materials that could be recyclable. There are people who would be happy to take these things off your hands for you. You also can take your recyclable metals to Behr in Monroe to sell yourself. If you have trash that needs to be removed, you can take it to the Green County Landfill. It is located at W2002 CTH SS between Monroe and Brodhead. You can call 608-897-8605 with any questions; the cost is quite nominal at $5 for up to about 300 lbs or $34 per ton. They are open 7 until 3 Monday through Friday. Read our post on Out with the Old from New Year's for some more options on what to do with your unneeded items.
