School Starts Soon!
If you want to help students who don’t have enough, remember that the Giving Center in the Halsey Community Center is a great place to leave extra school supplies. All the supplies are given to the Central Linn School District for distribution to students who need them. If you’ve got space in your budget for a couple of extra packs of pencils or crayons or paper or notebooks, they will get used, and they’ll help a local kid! School supplies lists are available below:
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
