You can join the beautification work

Are you one of the Vandalia residents who bemoans the appearance of the community? Now you can be a part of a community facelift.
The beautification committee formed by Mayor Rick Gottman late last year has met several times, kicking around some ideas about improving the city's looks. Now, it's inviting civic organizations and individuals to join the effort.
The committee is holding a public meeting at 5:30 p.m. this Thursday in council chambers at city hall, during which it will talk about possible beautification projects.
Many times, it is the same people who get involved in projects that benefit the entire community, and its residents. Some of those individuals are part of this project, but there are some new faces.
But we, like them, would love to see many more new faces, residents who have enough pride in Vandalia to want to get involved.
This is a perfect opportunity to enhance our reputation of being a community with a strong volunteer base, a community of people willing to roll up their sleeves and get down to work.
