"Today was an exciting day and one that we’ve been anxiously awaiting! The official groundbreaking for the new Wendy’s took place! Special thanks to Bill Parks and the Wendy's of Bloomington franchise for their investment in the City of Elwood.
Also thanks to the Elwood Redevelopment Commission, ERC special project advisor Bill Savage, ERC Consultant Alan Moore, Utility Foreman Glen Murray, Building Commissioner Jason Robison, and Building & Planning Assistant Amy Noone-Smith
This new restaurant would not have been possible without their hard work on acquiring the property and the demolitions. I am looking forward to enjoying a frosty and a chili in the near future."
-Mayor Todd Jones

"What a great day! I am very pleased to see construction starting on the Elwood Wendy's! This Wendy's will be a new building design complete with an outdoor dining patio. Another unique feature will be the semi/truck & trailer/RV lot which will allow on-site parking for large vehicles. Like Mayor Jones, I am ready to enjoy a frosty and chili."
-Bill Savage, Planning Director & Special Projects Advisor

"Wendy’s of Bloomington (WOB) opened their first restaurant in 1976. Since then, they have expanded to over 20 restaurants in two different states. WOB is excited to continue growing their Wendy’s family into the City of Elwood. Our mission is to “Delight every customer, empower every employee, and build something great together”. Our goal is to serve Burgers and Frosty’s to the People of Elwood before the end 2021."
-Morgan Corley, Wendy's of Bloomington

The Habitat for Humanity Restore of Madison County will have a truck in the parking lot across the street from the Municipal Building this Saturday, August 7th. They will be accepting donations from 11:00am - 1:00pm. This is a great chance to get rid of some of the "stuff" taking up space in your house, garage, attic, basement, shed or yard! All donations made help support the work Habitat does! Let's fill that truck up!

This morning Jay Kelich with Kelich Tree Service cut down a very large tree in Callaway Park. It's always hard to see a tree cut down especially one as big and old as this one was, but safety is our top priority and due to the condition of the tree, it had to come down. We are thankful for our Park Superintendent and his team of dedicated park employees who were proactive in making this happen and for Jay and his time and expertise today. All of their actions and work will help ensure the safety of our children, families, and all who visit Callaway Park. #safetyfirst #thankful #KelichTreeService #CallawayPark

We would to wish all of our students, teachers, and faculty a GREAT school year! It was fun to see kids waiting on their bus and walking into the schools this morning. Some looked super excited while others were apprehensive about their new adventure in learning, but we are thankful knowing we have loving and dedicated men and women who will ensure our children are kept safe and provided the best education possible! As a reminder, please use extra caution when driving through the city as many of our children will be walking to and from school and waiting at bus stops. Here's to a GREAT school year!
