Halsey Spring CleaningSpring is here, and with spring comes better weather and a great opportunity to get yards cleaned up. The next step in our resolution to make Halsey a cleaner, more attractive place to live and work is to address junk and debris in yards. Starting in April, city staff will be doing a drive through town to check for properties that are in violation of the Halsey Municipal Code with regard to the presence of visible junk or debris on their property. Letters will be sent encouraging property owners to take advantage of the Spring Clean-Up day as a great, free opportunity to clean up their property. For a definition of “junk” or information about the nuisance ordinance, the Halsey Municipal Code can be viewed on-line. Go to www.cityofhalsey.com. Under Administration, click on Halsey Municipal Code. In the search box, type Nuisance, Junk, or debris. You can also contact City Hall. City staff are happy to answer questions about the process.

Veterans Memorial Park ProjectThe City of Halsey is honored to be a recipient of a $28,515 grant from the Oregon Parks and Recreation Department Veterans & War Memorials Grant program. The proposed project will involve removing the maple tree from the park, installing a new circular seating area with benches, a new flag pole and lighting, and a new monument in the center of the park. The unhealthy trees in the planting strip on the south end of the park will be replaced, and new plantings will be added to the park. The goal for the new monument is to honor the service of veterans from the Central Linn Community: Halsey, Brownsville, and Shedd, and the surrounding rural area. The proposed timeline is to have the monument complete by summer of 2017. For more information about the project, to help, or to submit a name for the new monument, please visit our new Veterans Memorial Park Project page.

CentralLinnElementarySchoolBuildingThere have been rumors that the City of Halsey will be utilizing the Central Linn Elementary School building in some capacity in the event that the bond passes and the building is vacated; and with that, encumbering some of the maintenance costs. It is very important that the Central Linn voters understand the City of Halsey will not be maintaining the Elementary School Building in any capacity at any time, for financial reasons.-- Halsey City Administrator, Ronda Fischer
