City considers trick-or-treating hours for 2018 at next meeting

The City Council will consider setting “official” hours for trick-or-treating this year at their next City Council meeting, scheduled for October 9, 2018.

The resolution currently under consideration will set the time for trick-or-treating from 5pm to 7pm on Wednesday, October 31, 2018. Neighbors are encouraged to leave their front porch light on to signal their interest in hosting little goblins and ghosts during the event.
