City urges safety this Polka weekend

Police to patrol streets, watch for illegally parked vehicles
While people all over the city prepare to get in touch with their Czech side and dance a polka or two, city employees in many departments have been working long hours to make sure the city is ready for the onslaught of people that will come into town over the three-day weekend.
City Manager Steve Howerton said while the weekend is meant to be enjoyed, many city employees have been working for the past several weeks to get the city ready for the festival.
"We have had a number of city employees working throughout the city to get us ready for the festival," he said. "There are a host of duties that will also have to be handled throughout the weekend and the clean up after the festival is over. It is our hope that everyone has a wonderful weekend but also helps keep the city looking it’s best for our guests."
Glass containers and glass bottles will not be allowed in the downtown area during the Polka festival weekend. City officials are urging everyone to use only paper, plastic cups or metal containers for the safety of all festival attendees. All containers and other trash should be placed in litter barrels located on city streets and sidewalks.
