Welcome New City Councilor Leona Sander-Hunter!

posted Apr 14, 2017, 10:38 AM by Jill Nielson

On March 23rd, 2017 the Vader City Council appointed Leona Sander-Hunter to fill vacant Council Position #5. This seat became vacant back in January when Councilor Elect Ruth Crear resigned. 
Mrs. Sander-Hunter moved to Vader at the end of 2015 when she took ownership of the family home on C Street. Her grandfather, Jesse Brown, who served as Mayor of Vader from 1972-1975, lived in the home for many years. Leona has fond memories of spending Summer vacation and other holidays here in Vader and she and her husband are looking forward to serving the community she now calls home. 
This Council position along with two others will be up for re-election of a 2-year term this fall. Election filing dates are May 15-19 and information can be found on the Lewis County Candidate Filing webpage. 

Happy New Year!

posted Jan 10, 2017, 10:44 AM by Jill Nielson

The City Staff, Administration and Elected Officials wish all of you a Happy New Year full of peace, love and WARMTH!  It's been cold outside, but hopefully warm in your hearts and homes. Best wishes to all and don't forget to get your dog licenses renewed. We are able to help find lost owners when a pooch ends up wandering around town by accident, but only if they are licensed. It's easy and inexpensive. Only $10.50 for spayed/neutered and $18.75 if not. Follow this link to see a list of animal fees & regulations. Woof! 

Cleaning Up Vader! - Code Enforcement Strategies in Full Force

posted Dec 7, 2016, 1:59 PM by Jill Nielson

Have you noticed? Several properties in Vader have been getting cleaned up this Fall! Junk vehicles removed, vegetation cut back and trimmed, refuse removed and cleaned up. All this and more is happening around the City of Vader and the Mayor and City Council work to "Clean Up Vader!"

The City Council has worked for the past two years to get the appropriate regulations in place that would allow the Mayor to enforce clean-up regulations. We have finally begun to see the fruits of this extensive efforts. Several properties have already removed junk vehicles, overgrown vegetation, refuse and burned-out buildings. Another thing you might notice around town is boarded up vacant buildings which may be unsightly now, but they represent the effort to secure the property from vagrants, squatters and wild animals. This effort will help make our neighborhoods safe for all who live nearby. Safety is the city's first priority. Council will begin to discuss the "beauty" aspect in the next round of actions to be addressed. 

Hopefully you are enjoying a cleaner and safer community atmosphere. If you are aware of any city code violations please contact city hall and help the city staff become aware of possible issues needing to be addressed. You are an important part of the community and when we work together we can accomplish great things!

Go Vader Go!
