A Message from Mayor Mitchell:
As an introduction, I have served as Mayor since May 1999.
We now have only two living WWII veterans out of the 400 from our community that served.
Much of our city was built during their youth and as they aged so did the infrastructure.
Because of this, we have responded by beginning a water line replacement program. It started in 1999 as I entered the office. We are now on Phase VI of seven phases to complete a new water system.
We have also responded to the housing needs of our community by utilizing Community Development Assistance Program. Grants have helped to upgrade the homes of those that require a helping hand to renovate their roofs
The Dobry Municipal building
Work continues on a new medical center that will provide outpatient services. From water damage and mold to a clean canvas, the old bank building in Zeigler has been stripped out. “All the drywall, ceilings, floor, everything has been removed,” says Mayor Dennis Mitchell. A surprise donation of $230,000 from a local family named “Dobry” helped speed up the project. As a result, Morthland College Health Services will be housed in the Dobry Municipal building. Dr. Tim Morthland will help set up the clinic. He says there will be a physician there several times a week, along with a full-time mid-level physician.
