[ARCHIVED] City Hosts Candy Drive

EEK! City Hall, the 44th District Court and the Department of Public Services buildings have all undergone spooky transformations to help raise awareness AND CANDY for downtown’s annual safe trick-or-treating event, the Spooktacular.

City employees -- using their own time, money, and creativity -- have given city facilities a spooky makeover and now help is needed to decide the winner of this Halloween showdown. Between now and Oct. 28, the public is invited to visit city facilities and cast your vote for your favorite department Halloween display.

To vote, simply deliver an unopened bag of candy to the department you think has the most spirited display, or drop your bag off at the third-floor city manager’s office in City Hall (be sure to let us know which department you are voting for). The candy collected will be distributed by city employees as part of the Spooktacular event, which takes place from 1 - 4 p.m. on Oct. 30.

Happy trick-or-treating!
