From the Mayor's Desk - November 2017

Near the end of October, our City Council approved a change in how we will calculate our utility bills going forward. We believe this change will result in more accurate billing for all of us while maintaining the fairness of sharing the costs of operating and maintaining the 2 systems.

Our water use is metered but our sewers are not. We have used arithmetic and averaging to try to determine sewer usage in the past but it’s always been far less than an exact science.

From the Mayor's Desk - October 2017

The recent rain has helped immensely with the wild fires in our area and while the Eagle Creek Fire is still burning, it is 46% contained and has moved into the Fire Suppression Repair phase. Fire Suppression Repair is a series of immediate post-fire actions taken to repair impacts to the land and minimize the potential for soil erosion and other issues that might arise from these activities. It usually begins before the fire is completely contained and before the demobilization of the Incident Management Team.

Mosquito Prevention Information

Mosquitoes lay up to 250 eggs at a time in still water, which will hatch in 7 to 15 days. During the off season, mosquitoes can lay dormant for up to one year. If standing water is eliminated weekly, many mosquitoes will be kept from breeding in the first place. So if you are anti-mosquito, then start by getting rid of these breeding grounds in your yard.
