Mills working on plans to bring Santa to town

| October 27, 2020

At the Oct. 26 city council meeting, Mayor Mark Mills and city council members expressed thanks and appreciation to all of the residents and businesses that showed up on Oct. 24 to help clean up downtown Coshocton. Close to 50 people showed up and helped out, and because of the amount of volunteers, all of the work was completed by 10:30 a.m.

While Coshocton’s annual Christmas parade was cancelled this year due to COVID, Mayor Mills stated that he is working on hopefully getting Santa in Coshocton some time in December to travel around so the children can see Santa from their homes. The hope is that he will be able to ride around on a fire truck to neighborhoods. If this does occur, Mayor Mills plans to have a schedule of where Santa will make appearances.

Service Director Max Crown expressed appreciation to residents for their patience and understanding while street paving occurred the last few weeks. Next on the agenda is to do striping on the streets.

A friendly reminder to residents of Coshocton, trash cans are permitted to be taken to the curb up to 24 hours prior to trash pickup, and are expected to be taken from the curb within 24 hours after pickup. This is to help keep the streets safe and the community looking nice.

Mayor Mills also confirmed that Trick-or-Treat in Coshocton is happening on Saturday, Oct. 31 from 5-6:30 p.m. According to Mayor Mills, someone on Facebook has been attempting to move the date, but Mayor Mills assures residents that neither the date nor time has changed.
