Here are five items to take note of today in Oakdale.
Work on a new Kwik Trip on Hadley Avenue is progressing, and the company is hiring.
The property has been vacant for several years, and the Oakdale City Council this spring approved several measures that moved the redevelopment project forward.
“It’s good to see it turning around,” City Administrator Craig Waldron said at the time.
A service station and a car wash are being built at the site, at the corner of Hadley Avenue and Highway 5.
The first-ever art fair at the Oakdale Discovery Center, set for Oct. 12-13, and the city is looking for artists to participate.
Entry forms will be accepted until Aug. 30. Forms and complete details are available online.
The Oakdale Discovery Center is located at 4444 Hadley Ave.

Washington County on Wednesday sent out an update on its 2014 budget process.
The recommended budget has a property tax levy of $86.7 million, a .66 percent increase from 2013. With the .66 percent increase, on average, property owners should see a reduced county tax as the county tax rate is projected to decrease.
