The Sully City Council and members of the Hometown Pride and Sully Betterment committees want to thank the people of Sully and the surrounding area for participating in the 2017 Community Survey.  There were 290 persons that submitted survey responses.  The compiled results of the survey can be read in the report found at this link:  Community Survey Results

Residents of the community are encouraged to attend the town meeting scheduled for January 11, 2018.  The purpose of the meeting will be to discuss and prioritize the submitted responses and ideas.  Additional meeting details will be made available later.  Mark your calendar to save the date.  If you have questions about the survey results, you may contact Brent Vander Molen ( This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

You need JavaScript enabled to view it ) or Teryl Ver Ploeg ( This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it ).


The Sully city office will be closed Friday, December 22 thru Tuesday, December 26 for Christmas.  Have a wonderful holiday weekend!


It has been brought to my attention that some people in the community don't always know what is being discussed at the city council meetings or know how to voice their opinion. I am going to try to write a short update each month and give a heads up on the items that are on the agenda. The list may not be complete due to the fact the deadline to add to the agenda is noon on the Thursday before the meeting. This month the agenda includes Sully Cemetery request for financial assistance; Co-Line wastewater request; set special project property area and ordinance amendments for fireworks; all-terrain vehicle crossings; water service discontinued and cigarette and tobacco permits. The agenda is also posted to the city website each month. Council meetings are the second Monday of the month at 7:00 p.m. If you would like to have an issue added to the agenda; bring the information to the city clerk before the deadline. If you have an opinion or questions on an issue you can always contact a council member and ask them or advise them of your concern. Council members are the only voting members and are there to represent you.
How Festive would residents like to see the Sully Park during the Christmas season?  The Sully Garden Thyme club has added a lighted Christmas Tree and hanging wreaths on the stage in the Central Park.  We found that a 12 foot lighted tree would be the perfect addition to the park, but we will need your help.  If you (either individuals or businesses) would like to donate any amount to this cause, please leave your donation in the designated box at the Coffee Cup Café, Van Der Zyl Insurance Agency, or Caseys.  You may also mail your donation to Sully Garden Thyme Club, PO Box 139, Sully, Iowa 50251.  We appreciate your help with this project and making the Sully Park festive for the Christmas Season.
