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.

With many local schools starting before the Labor Day Weekend, it’s the perfect time to remind ourselves that we all need to pay closer attention to the school bus stops around our community. Having been repainted over the summer, our bus stops are easier to see but we still need your help to make sure our students remain safe throughout the upcoming school year as they await their buses in the mornings and are dropped off in the afternoons.

As the days getting shorter over the next few months, kids will soon be waiting for their morning buses in the dark, making it even more important for us to be extra cautious as we drive through North Bonneville.

In other news, our Public Works employees have once again received an award from the Washington State Department of Ecology for their exemplary efforts to monitor and maintain our wastewater treatment plant. We don’t see most of the hard work Richard, Bryan and Gary put in to keep the treatment plant running at its best but they are called out at all times of the day and night to respond to lift station alarms and a plethora of other issues. Please take a few seconds to thank them for all they do to make our lives easier the next time you see one of them around town, As always, if you have any comments, feedback, suggestions or extra snacks, please contact me here at City Hall at 427-8182 or via don [at] northbonneville.net (subject: A%20message%20from%20North%20Bonneville%20website) (email).
