We did it!

Our small community has been awarded funding through a bonding bill that was recently signed into law by Governor Walz in the 5th Legislative session. This funding is a matching grant. This is extremely exciting for our community!  This project is to build a large community center and fitness room.  The large community room will have access to the kitchen that is included in the new City Hall building. Class reunions, wedding receptions, birthday parties, holiday bazaar, and large family reunions are just a few events that would be able to be hosted in Ellsworth. 

Due to the Coronavirus, we have not been able to hold any fundraising events.  However, we are still able to accept your generous contribution through the Capital Campaign Fundraising.  *** PLEASE NOTE *** – All contribution amounts will be kept confidential.  All contributions are tax deductible through a partnership with the Lismore Area Community Foundation and the Southwest Initiative Foundation.   Any gift, large or small, is appreciated.

This is the time of year to give.  Will you consider making a financial contribution or pledge this holiday season? 

Please consider giving to the Capital Campaign fundraising effort to go toward the new Community Center.  Contributions and/or pledges may be sent to:

Southwest Initiative Foundation

C/O DeNoble, Austin & Company PC

121 S. Story Street

Rock Rapids, Iowa  51246

 

To those who have already given, THANK YOU. Your gift is very much appreciated!

Yes, we did it!  Now we need your support to make it a dream come true for the City of Ellsworth!  

 

Thanks for your time and support of this project.

Maintenance Power Outage

Nobles Cooperative Electric and Legacy are working together to conduct maintenance on our power supply. You will be notified by Nobles Cooperative Electric that you will not have power.

Wednesday, December 16th, 2020, on the southwest side of town (beginning south of Domeyer Implement and continuing past the Ellsworth Public School), 2nd Street through 7th Avenue, power will be shut off the entire day. Some businesses still may be open as they are obtaining their own generators.

Thursday, December 17th, 2020, on the southeast side of town (beginning at the corner of Kanaranzi Creek, past Dan's Station) 3rd Street through 7th Avenue, power will be shut off 4-6 hours beginning in the morning. Again, Nobles Cooperative Electric will be contacting you of the power outage. The Oakwood apartments & some houses may NOT be included in this power outage for this specific day.

The north end of town, east & west, is to be determined.

Please keep in mind that our whole city has been without power through the ice storm in April 2013 and the electrical outage in April 2018! By this maintenance, our city will be able to get a feed from the mid-north end and also the southeast end to keep at least half of our city going if it ever does happen again. We all don't want to go through a power outage with our entire town out of power again! So, please be patient with these outages.
