Local Artist wins Best in Show
posted October 14, 2009

Local artist and art teacher, Joyce Kilgore, painted this picture from one of our city hall collection of old photographs of Collins.  Joyce entered the Osceola Art Guild contest this September and won not only a first place blue ribbon but "best in show" as well.  The painting depicts some of Collins mail carriers from the past. 
Congratulations Joyce! Good Job! 



Village of Collins has a new Storm Siren!
Posted Dec 30, 2008

Crews from Storm Sirens and Empire Electric installed a storm siren in Collins on Monday, November 24, 2010.  Empire Electric delivered the pole and Storm Sirens assembled everything on the ground.  The Empire crew then drilled the hole and placed the pole and siren upright.  There is an activation switch at the base of the pole and it can also be activated by radio.
The siren will be tested on the first Wednesday of each month at 12:00 noon when the weather is good.  We will not be testing during times of severe weather, so it will not be confused with an actual warning.
