2/16 Pet Registration @ North Judson Police Department

It's that time again to register your pets. We are trying to make it easier to obtain your tags. FEBRUARY 16, 2019 from 8 am to Noon we will be at the Police Department to issue your tags. Please bring your information about your pets.

This is for those who live in the Town limits and have difficulties making it to the Water Department due to work schedules. There will be no late fees assessed on tags that day. We look forward to serving you.

On Saturday, February 16th the North Judson Police Department will be open from 8am until noon for any resident with unregistered pets who would like to purchase pet tags before a penalty is assessed. Be sure to bring proof of your pet’s up-to-date vaccinations.

Depending on the weather, golf cart inspections and permitting can also be performed. You MUST bring your insurance documentation (not just an insurance card) as we will not be contacting insurance companies on your behalf.

Also, to any residents or individuals with outstanding Ordinance Violations, this will be your last chance to settle past due violations before they are forwarded to the County Prosecutor to be processed with the Knox City Court, which will result in court costs & attorney fees! If you have any questions, please call Town Hall @ 574-896-2711, option 1.

Booths must be paid for in advance and there is no limit to how many booths you may purchase! Space IS limited, so reserve your spot(s) today! You may bring the $15 cash or check to the shelter or if you're local to Heather, arrange to have it dropped off to her.

Food and drinks will also be available for purchase.

Contact Heather Marshall with questions and for more details!

Thank you so much for your continued support. You are the reason we can keep our doors open and continue to serve the community!

Want to help the shelter but can't set up your own booth? Monetary donations are always welcome, and you may also bring your treasures to us to sell at the booth the shelter will have, where all proceeds go to the animals!

You may drop off your donated items to Grand Central Station on Friday, February 22 from 9-12 and 4-7. We do not have room to store them at the shelter, so please drop items off as noted above. Thank you!

2/23 Freezin' for A Reason

Some North Judson officials and local emergency personnel will be “Freezin’ for a Reason” next month, with a special fundraiser scheduled for Saturday, February 23rd from 3-6pm.

At the North Judson Town Council’s second meeting in January, Town Marshal Kelly Fisher shared plans for a fundraiser that would help collect funds to purchase boots, hats and gloves for kids in need.

The event would involve police officers, firefighters, EMS personnel and even some town council members jumping into a container filled with icy water.

If someone from the community would like to jump in as well, they can by paying $20 to participate. Fisher said there will also be another way for residents to play a part in the event.

She mentioned, “I think what we’ll do is if the public wants to participate and bring in a tray of ice cubes and put them in the water to kind of add to it, we’ll do that.”

Fisher noted that they will have an ambulance on site in order to ensure no one is in any danger, should they feel they’re getting too cold for comfort.

All monetary donations will go towards purchasing the apparel mentioned above. However, citizens are also welcome to bring in those items in lieu of a cash contribution.

The Police Department will hold a distribution day at their station sometime after the fundraiser so kids can come in to pick up the donated winter-wear.

Marshal Fisher said this is the first year they’re doing a fundraiser like this, but she hopes it can become an annual tradition where they raise money for various local needs.

If you have any questions, contact event organizers through the NJPD Facebook page or call 574-772-5914.
