So, What is a GAGA BALL PIT?

I'm sure if you have been reading the newsletter you have seen the flyer about the Gaga Ball Pit.  And I'm sure you are wondering just what in the world is that.  Well, if you have kids in junior high or high school chances are they have played gaga ball in PE Class.  Pat Wray, PE instructor, has had the kids play this before and has found that they really enjoy it.  It is quite the rage in other parts of the country and many communities are installing one.

Reilly Kuenning, a freshman at Elmwood Murdock is a Life Scout from Boy Scout Troop 360 in the Seven Feathers District of the Cornhusker Council in Elmwood.  As he started to plan his Eagle Scout project he thought about the Elmwood Park and wondered if a Gaga Ball Pit would work there.  An Eagle Scout project is the opportunity for a Boy Scout, Varsity Scout or qualified Venturer in the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) to demonstrate leadership of others while performing a project for the benefit of his community.  He did some research to see what it would take to build one and then made a presentation to the Elmwood Village Board of Trustees to see if they would approve his suggestion of building one in the park.  The project was approved! 

Reilly is seeking donations of some or all of the materials to build the Gaga Ball Pit on the old basketball court in the Elmwood Park.  Monetary donations are also appreciated!  The Gaga Ball Pit will be a favorite of kids of all ages.  Once it is installed there will be a grand opening with a demonstration on how to play.  People can form teams and there will be a tournament! 

You may have seen the donations cans around town.  Throw your spare change in and help the future Eagle Scout achieve his goal!  In the process you will be helping to bring a new game to the park.

Pet Owner:


The Village of Elmwood Board of Trustees would like to notify you that if you own a dog or cat, you are required by law to license your pet for the 2015 year through the month of April at the City Hall; this year you have up until May 15th for licensing of your pet. The cost is $10.00 per dog or $8.00 if spayed or neutered and/or $5.00 per cat or $2.50 if spayed or neutered. You will be required to show a current valid rabies vaccination certificate, and/or proof of spaying or neutering certificate issued by a veterinarian.


This licensing is a requirement of State Ordinance 93.40. All dogs or cats over 6 months of age are required to be vaccinated for rabies and have a valid license. This license tag is to be worn by the pet at all times, and the animal is to be kept on the owner’s property or on a leash at all times. Any dog or cat found running at large with or without licensing may be impounded and a $50.00 fine charged for its return; if impounded a second time the fine will be $100.00, and the third time it is impounded the fine will be $150.00. In addition to the impound fee, the pet owner will be responsible for licensing fees if the pet is found running at large without a license.


This licensing is mandatory and anyone not acquiring a license for their pet by May 15, 2015, will be in violation of the law and subject to a citation. If you have not secured a 2015 license for your pet by May 15, 2015, you will be responsible for the license fee per pet in addition to a late fee charge of $50.00 per animal.


In addition to licensing, a KENNEL PERMIT or MULTI-CAT PERMIT are required for anyone having three (3) or more dogs or cats. A KENNEL PERMIT APPLICATION along with the $75.00 fee or a MULTI-CAT PERMIT with a $50.00 fee must be filed with the Village Clerk at the same time as the pet licensing application. A kennel permit or multi-cat permit may be issued pending approval by the Village of Elmwood Board of Trustees.
