City Manager Andrew Bowsher announced earlier today that the 2023 Sidney City Calendars were delivered to the Sidney Post Office late last week for delivery to residential households. The calendars should arrive in mailboxes soon.
The city utilized the postal Every Door Direct Mail (EDDM) service to distribute the calendars to city households. “While the EDDM service is cost efficient and reaches the majority of households in the city, it does not reach all residents,” Bowsher explained. “There are several areas of the city, near the municipal limits, that the US Postal Service classifies as rural routes and as such will not receive a copy of the calendar in the mail. If residents did not receive a calendar and wish to have one, they can contact City Clerk Kari Egbert, or stop by City Hall to pick up a copy of the calendar,” Bowsher added. “Residents who hold Sidney post office boxes should also receive a copy of the calendar in their box.”
In 2019, the city resumed mailing calendars to residential households; this restored a service that was eliminated as a result of the Great Recession.
The City of Sidney has produced an annual calendar since 1976. It contains the dates of meetings of City Council as well as the numerous City Boards and Commissions. The calendar also notes winter yard waste pick-up dates as well as any changes in solid waste collection routes due to holidays.
