From the Mayor's Desk - December 2015

As we head into the last month of the year we find ourselves cleaning up after the worst storm I recall since moving to North Bonneville in 2005. While it will be some time before we get things back to normal, it was very heartening to witness so many of our residents pitching in during the storm to clear downed trees, unclog the catch basins that feed our storm water system and generally look out for each other.

Halloween Safety Tips

Walk Safely

  • Cross the street at corners, using traffic signals and crosswalks.
  • Look left, right and left again when crossing and keep looking as you cross.
  • Put electronic devices down and keep heads up and walk, don’t run, across the street.
  • Teach children to make eye contact with drivers before crossing in front of them.
  •  Always walk on sidewalks or paths. If there are no sidewalks, walk facing traffic as far to the left as possible. Children should walk on direct routes with the fewest street crossings.

A Reminder for Residents

If you intend to leave your premises for some extended time period (less than 180 continuous days in duration), the City will continue to charge you the bi-monthly water and sewer utility base rate in your absence. If you intend to leave your premises for an extended period of time [more than 180 continuous days] you may request the City shut off your water meter during this time period. The City will charge you a $60 turn-on fee but you will not be subject to the monthly base water and sewer rate during that time frame.

The recent wastewater system problem we experienced gave us another chance to use the Southwest Washington Public Alert system to notify our residents of the issue. The calls also asked us not to flush our toilets or run water down any drains until notified it was okay to do so. Our Public Works team was able to resolve the problem in a few hours and a second series of robocalls were made to notify us it was okay to resume using the system.

From the Mayor's Desk - September 2015

Fall doesn’t officially start until September 23rd this year but it looks and feels a lot like it’s here already. The much-needed rain we’ve been getting over the past several days and the brightly colored leaves blowing around town are clear signs summer is coming to an end. Among other things, the arrival of fall signals shorter days ahead, the imminent end of hot weather and the start of a new school year.
