It’s that time of year when hunters are getting excited about the upcoming deer season and Hunt for Hunger is getting ready for hopefully another successful year. Hunt for Hunger was started 3 years ago by David Neier, then a 9-year old student at Daniel Boone Elementary School in New Melle.
The New Melle Fire Protection District officially has a new Fire Chief, Dan Casey, effective October 1, 2020. Casey replaces Rick Massey who joined the district as a volunteer in 1980 and has served as Chief since 2005.
Since 1951, when the New Melle Fire Protection District was established, we have always been extremely conscientious of your hard-earned tax dollars. We have stretched every dollar as far as possible to give the taxpayers the most efficient and effective equipment and manpower possible.
On August 30, 2020, a new “Welcome to New Melle” sign was installed in the wedge at the intersection of Hwys. D and Z in New Melle. The Eagle Scout project was coordinated by Cyrus Hunter, a member of Boy Scout Troop 856, New Melle.
