Come join us for Wilber’s 150th Traditional Christmas
Monday, December 4, 2023 from 5:00-6:30 p.m. at the Wilber Cultural Center, 110 W 3rd Street, Wilber.
If you have a dog, it is a City of Wilber and State of Nebraska ordinance to license them. Review state statue below:
Besides it being a requirement of the state and City of Wilber, licensing your dog actually provides a number of benefits to you and your pet.
- It proves that your dog and other dogs that yours comes in contact with are vaccinated. Hopefully your pup stays safe when out on walks and even in it’s own yard but should another dog attack, a license will identify if that dog was vaccinated, helping you and your vet to determine the next steps.
- Your dog has a better chance of being returned home if lost. In some communities, your pet’s license means a free trip home if they’re found by local animal control. Without a license, it might mean an expensive overnight stay at the municipal animal shelter.
- It is a small price to pay for the piece of mind of getting your pet home safe and sound. Even if your dog is not outside on a regular basis, there is always the chance of them slipping out. For only $6.50 (this fee is reviewed on a regular basis to make sure that our cost for tags, etc is covered) your pet would be registered with the City so know who to contact.
- It’s quick. You don’t even have to come into the office to register your pet. You can do it online or mail the form in if you’re busy for an additional $1.00 fee to mail the tag.
With Christmas just a few days away, all of us at the City of Wilber would like to wish all of our residents a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
So that our employees can enjoy time with their families, we will be closed on Monday, December 26th. If you have an emergency, please see our emergency contact information for direction on who to contact.
Each year the Wilber Area Chamber of Commerce hosts their Hometown Holiday Celebration. This year they will transform the town into a Candyland Christmas, with gingerbread men, lollipops, the community tree lighting, local shopping and the annual craft show (click link for vendor registration form) and visit with Santa.
