Trick or treat has City Hall phones ringing

Port aldermen answer burning question by setting Saturday, Oct. 26, as big day

Port Washington City Administrator Mark Grams asked the Common Council Tuesday to answer the question asked most often of the staff at City Hall — when will trick or treat be held.

“We get a lot of phone calls,” Grams said. “The No. 1 question is when is trick or treat.”

Even though the matter wasn’t on the agenda, Grams asked aldermen to unofficially set the date with final action coming at the council’s Tuesday, Sept. 17, meeting.

Traditionally, he said, the city has held trick or treat on the last Saturday of October. If that holds, he said, children would flood the streets seeking their Halloween bounty on Oct. 26.

Aldermen agreed to the date, but declined to set the time, saying they will decide that at their next meeting.

Mayor Marty Becker noted that last year the council agreed to a three-hour time period, not the four hours previously held.

Ald. Deb Postl questioned that, saying, “Three hours is way too long.”
