Mayor Mills encourages residents to mask up

| November 24, 2020

At the Nov. 23 city council and committee meetings, it was shared that thanks to the CARES Act, Coshocton has received some additional COVID funding, which may allow the city to help some of the local schools with some projects.

Mayor Mills took time during the meeting to encourage residents to step up and mask up saying, “if we want to see family members next year, protect yourselves and your family by stepping up and masking up.” Mills went on to promote the step up and mask up video that was made to encourage Coshocton County residents to be kind to one another by stepping up and wearing a mask to keep others safe. The video can be viewed on the City of Coshocton – City Hall Facebook page.

During the meeting Mills explained that decorating downtown Coshocton is not the responsibility of the city, but the city does help out with it. Accordingly, service director, Max Crown confirmed a city crew would be out and about on Nov. 24 to help decorate Main Street for the holiday season.

Roger Moore, councilman at large, shared a way residents can help one another out this Christmas. The Opportunity School is heading up a hat, coat and gloves drive that will help homeless and needy families in the community. New or gently used winter hats, coats and gloves can be dropped off at both the Department of Job and Family services from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday, or on the top floor of Coshocton High School on Dec. 2 from 4-6 p.m. The donated items will then be hung on the trees on Main Street at 3 p.m. on Dec. 3 so that those in need can take what they need.
