SPRING HAS SPRUNG...

Judging by the nightly serenade of Pacific chorus frogs and the profusion of blooming spring flowers, winter is losing its annual battle for supremacy in the Northwest. Gardeners are busily laying plans for summer crops and landscaping, and the more intrepid are even sharpening mower blades and checking the oil levels in their roto-tillers. We ask that, amidst the dreams of bark dust and daffodils, you remember to ensure that your water meter does not become obscured, either by foliage or landscaping supplies. Also, be careful with tillers 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.
