SPRING HAS SPRUNG?

Having (hopefully) survived the monsoons better known as "Winter" this year in the Pacific Northwest, the thoughts of intrepid gardeners are probably turning towards summer crops and landscaping - though this year aquaculture might be an appropriate avenue...cattails vs delphiniums, rice paddies vs succulents.... We do ask that, whether excavating that new fish pond or mucking out your moat, you remember to ensure that your water meter does not become obscured, either by foliage or landscaping supplies. Also, be careful with tillers (hah!) and shovels in the area of your waterlines. The City will once again have its summer sewer averaging in place to allow for watering from May through September, but it would be wise to consider that you do have to pay for all the water going through your meter, so keep an eye on hoses or sprinklers being left on. As always, our Public Works crew is ready to help with locating your meter, just give them a call at (541)563-2111 to set up an appointment.

E-BILLING ON THE HORIZON

We're pleased to announce that the City will be implementing electronic billing later on this summer, which will allow customers to view their account information and/or make payments online, as well as opt for paperless billing. We anticipate this to start soon after the beginning of the next fiscal year (July 1), as it will involve an upgrade in hardware and security software. However, if you wish to get a "jump start" on the process, please send a short email to Utility Billing Clerk, Robin Morris, and she can get your email address into the system.
