Prize Drawing hosted at El Dorado Commission meeting

Deanna Bonn

In September, the El Dorado City Commission mailed a Strategic Planning Survey to each address in El Dorado, with a stamped return envelope included for easy reply. Citizens were requested to fill it out and send it in or fill out the electronic version online. Over 550 surveys were returned.

During the beginning of the City Commission meeting on Monday, October 19, 2020, the winners were drawn using a random name generator and were announced. The grand prize was a year (maximum $1,200) of city-provided utilities and went to Ted and Susan Wrench. Other prizes included gift cards to many local businesses. John Perott won a month of free utilities.

Ted McGowin won a $100 Walmart gift card.

Gerald Wittenberg won a $100 Dillons gift card.

Barb Smith won a $50 Walnut Valley Packing gift card.

Deborah Adolph Espinosa won a $50 Ace Hardware gift card.

Steve Appleman won a $25 Willies gift card.
