At the end of the grand opening ceremony for the new Billy S. Hobbs Community Center, a time capsule was buried outside the entrance. It contained various items such as newspaper clippings, letters from city officials, and other items from different departments. Everything in the capsule was collected over the course of last year as the city celebrated its 50th birthday celebration.

Police Chief Patrick Brady and Fire Chief Patrick McLaughlin helped lower the time capsule into a tank, which was then sealed underground. It will not be opened again until 50 years from now, in 2072.
