The Halsey City Council is looking to form an Infrastructure Committee. This committee will look at all aspects of the infrastructure, from sewer and water utilities to drainage, streets, and parks. The Committee will learn the nuts & bolts of the existing systems and be able to make recommendations about priorities for future projects that will impact planning and budgeting for the City of Halsey. Infrastructure is one of the greatest challenges faced by small communities. Many folks have an opinion. Please share yours! If you’re interested in serving on the Infrastructure Committee, please contact City Hall at (541) 369-2522. Committee members will fill out a one page application and be appointed by the City Council.
Voluntary Water Conservation Notice
Due to a small decline in the water levels in our wells, we are asking the residents of Halsey for a voluntary reduction of water usage until further notice. The reduction is essential to preserve proper recuperation in the well levels due to low winter rain, snow run-off, and high summer water usage. There is not a water shortage yet, but we are hoping through voluntary conservation we can prevent the need for any kind of mandatory water conservation. Any assistance you can provide with this issue is greatly appreciated. Thank you.Andy RidingerCity of HalseyPublic Works
Halsey Summer’s End Picnic
The End of Summer Picnic was so much fun last year that we want to do it again! In fact, we hope it becomes an annual tradition. The picnic will be on Friday, August 21 from 3-6:00 pm.Once again, the Halsey Shedd RFPD will be cooking for us! The City will supply hotdogs, hamburgers and fixings. The rest of the meal is potluck. Last year, there were some really wonderful treats around the table! In an attempt to be a little more organized this year, we’re going to go by letters. So if your last name starts with:A to I—please bring a salad or a side dish. J to Q—please bring a dessert. R-Z—please bring beverages to share. We will have fire trucks, sprinklers, chalk, bubbles, and other outdoor games again. We are also organizing relay races and activities for kids with small prizes. It should be a really fun day! This is a whole-city thing — everyone is welcome, so please spread the word. And if you came to last year’s picnic and have suggestions about how to make it better, please let us know!
