The city is looking at a renewable future alongside its zoning rewrite

Today is May 23, 2024.

  • Good morning! All in all, it looks like we’re in for a nice Memorial weekend. Today, we’re forecast to have a passing shower in the morning; otherwise, it’ll be partly sunny and warm, with a high of 79 degrees and a low of 56. The weekend looks warm and mostly dry, then the weather takes a bit of a turn for Memorial Day on Monday when it’ll be mostly cloudy and windy with a couple of showers possible and a high of 76. So it could be hit-and-miss for those ceremonies and cookouts.

  • SILVER LAKE MEMORIAL DAY CEREMONY: The Village of Silver Lake will hold a short Memorial Day service at 11 a.m. Monday, May 27 at the Veterans Tribute Garden, located adjacent to Village Hall at 2961 Kent Rd. The ceremony is open to the public. In the event of heavy rain, the service will be moved inside Village Hall. Order forms will be available for brick pavers to be added to the Veterans Tribute Garden. Orders must be placed no later than Monday, June 10.
