From the Mayor
As we move into February I cannot help but think of the fickle weather the city experienced in January. Together we have seen rain, sleet, snow, and even temperatures in the 60's. While some may enjoy the cold and snow, I prefer the sunshine and warm temperatures.
While the cold weather does provide its own benefits, the warmer weather provides us with opportunities to explore Greenfield, particularly our parks and trails. The city's award winning Beckenholdt Park is a great example of what is offered to residents and visitors. Wildlife can be viewed there and dog owners can spend a fun afternoon with the dog(s) at Rover's Run.
Rover's Run is an exclusive fenced-in dog playing facility. There is an obstacle course to test your dog's skills, and plenty of space just to run about. Rover's Run does require a magnetic pass to enter, and proof of current vaccinations is required. You can pick up a Rover's Run package at the Pat Elmore Center within Riley Park. While you are at Riley Park, take a good look around and see what changes have been made within the park. I think you will be pleasantly surprised.
This great city continues its process of growth. Many of us are looking forward to ground breaking on a couple new retail stores and the opening of many others. While these new additions are moving forward, I ask that you continue to shop local. Downtown Greenfield is host to many wonderful shops and restaurants, and our businesses extend east, west, north, and south of the city. Greenfield has so much to offer, but we still need your help. Come downtown when you get a chance and even stop in and say hello! Thank you.
Have a great month!
Chuck Fewell, Mayor
A message from your City of Greenfield Water Department.
Residents of Greenfield,
We have become aware of companies that are offering insurance on the water service lines leading from the City connection to your home. These parties have printed information on their mailing advertisements that may give the impression that the City is a participant of the insurance offer. The City of Greenfield is in no way associated with and does not endorse any insurance program. The Water Utility has the responsibility for the connection from the water main to 4ft beyond the meter pit. After that 4ft the property owner is then responsible and must make any repairs necessary on that line. We would advise that anyone wishing to participate in an insurance program for their water service lines be informed and research the offer properly before proceeding. Should you have any questions or concerns please contact the Water Department at 317-477-4350.
Respectfully,City of Greenfield Water Utility

Do you can fruit and vegetables? Many people still do. But did you know that the glass canning jars that you put those foods in has a highly collectible market today? And did you know that some of the most sought after glass jars in that market were produced in Greenfield?
This history of preserving our food, the containers and methods go back to the Greek and Romans. Many different materials have been used to make jars over time. But even with all the tested and tried materials only one stood up to preserve food the best.......glass. Napoleon made this discovery while being desperate to preserve food for his army. He offered 10,000 francs to whoever could come up with a material. Nicolas Appert, A French chef, devised the first method of sealed glass jars.
