Starting the week of September 24th, Monchilov Sewer Service will be performing routine maintenance on the City’s Sanitary and Storm Sewer systems. This process involves using low water pressure to clean out any debris that has built up in the sewer pipes. The crew will then lower a camera into the sewers to inspect the pipes for any defects.
In the event that they come across grease buildups, roots or other debris deposits, they will be required to change out the nozzle on their hose and increase the water pressure. This has the potential to cause pressure surges that may result in traps, drains and toilets expelling wastewater. If this is a concern or prior issue you may wish to stop or cover drains and leave toilet lids closed to minimize potential effects. In the event this does occur, please notify the Monchilov field crews. Otherwise contact the City offices at (231) 832-2245 and they will arrange for Monchilov to contact you regarding the issue.

The Reed City CrossRoads Theatre and Performing Arts Centre Board is honored to be recognized as the August Reed City Area Chamber of Commerce Member of the Month.
In 1986, the first show was “You Can’t Take It With You” performed above the old movie theatre where the football team helped carry in the equipment. The next location was briefly at the old museum on Chestnut and Todd Streets and then a production of “Rafferty’s Wake” was performed at the Osceola County Fairgrounds. The Theatre Guild purchased the former Congressional Church at 249 W. Upton in 2012 and has been transforming it into a very busy live performance centre. Including their own stage productions, musicians such as Ruby and the Retros, Tuba Bach and The Crossroads Harmony Chorus of Sweet Adelines have provided the community with amazing concerts.
The CrossRoad Theatre will be celebrating their 32nd year starting this September. The 2018 - 2019 season begins with Joseph Kesselring's ARSENIC AND OLD LACE September 21-30, Melanie Marnich’s THESE SHINING LIVES November 16-25, a special presentation of Barbara Robinson’s THE BEST CHRISTMAS PAGEANT EVER December 15 and 16, Neil Simon’s THE PRISONER OF SECOND AVENUE February 22-March 3, and Patrick Dennis’s AUNTIE MAME May 17-26. There will also be a summer teen production in July, 2019. Stay tuned for that announcement soon!

Osceola County was named after Seminole Indian warrior Chief Osceola. The first white settler to the area was Nathan Hersey, a fur trapper, who arrived in 1840 and settled near the town and river that still bears his name. Reed City was plotted in 1870. Its first school was opened in 1872. By the late 1890s and early 1900s, the village had a population of about 2,690, and it officially became a city in 1933. Notable residents of Reed City include Thomas Schall, U.S. Senator from Minnesota, and George Bennard, American hymn composer and preacher best known for composing the famous hymn, "The Old Rugged Cross".
