Max Levy Public Hearing
The City of Worthington is preparing the annual budget for Fiscal Year 2020-2021. Iowa Senate File 634 requires a public hearing on the proposed maximum property tax dollars. You can view the maximum property tax dollars on the button below.
Just a friendly reminder to please shovel your sidewalks within 48 hours after the snow accumulates (Title III, Community Protection-Chapter 2: Nuisances, section dd.).
We want to ensure sidewalks stay snow/ice free as much as possible for our winter walkers and kiddos who walk to the bus stop! Thank you for your compliance on this matter.
Music in the Park
Recently, a committee was formed to help generate sponsorship to host music events under the pavilion in Veterans Square Worthington, IA. The committee is composed of six members: Jayne Reiter, Jennie Jaeger, Emily Lahr, Gene Kramer, Michelle Jurgens, Gary Langel, and Lauren Manternach.
We hope to host two to three outdoor music events per year (in the spring, summer, and fall months). We are asking for your help and generosity in starting our new small-town tradition. If you would like to make a donation, please call City Hall at (563)855-2825 or you can mail a check to P.O. Box 197 Worthington, IA 52078.
Please know, you will be recognized at one of the events for sponsorship.

Your residence should be receiving the 2020 Census paperwork within the next few weeks (the initial mailings go out March 12th). Please ensure you fill this paperwork out in a timely and accurate manner.
There are certain tax dollars the city gets, which are based per capita; and the facts and figures provided by the census have proven to be extremely useful in all types of development.
If you do not fill out the Census 2020 paperwork by April 1st (you can fill out the form and mail back, call in to the Census, or go online and fill out the information), there will be Census workers who will stop door to door to obtain this information starting May 2020.
United States Code, Title 13, Chapter 7: Sub-Chapter II explains penalties in conjunction with refusal to fill out this information of falsifying information on the Census; so please make sure you get this done in a timely and accurate manner.
If you are interested to obtaining a temporary position with the Census (census taker, recruiting assistants, office staff, and supervisory staff), go to 2020census.gov/jobs.

Dubuque Racing Association Grant
The City of Worthington and the residents of our community want to extend a huge "thank you" to the Dubuque Racing Association (DRA) for approving a $3,500 grant for new library bookshelves. If it were not for entities like the DRA providing grant monies to small communities such as ourselves, there would be many projects we wouldn't be able to complete. We again, want to thank you sincerely! Please help me in recognizing the DRA (share, like, comment),
We will notify our residents once the books are on the new shelving and the library is open for businesses. We thank you for your patience during this time.
