Planning Commission Member needed

The City is currently taking applications for a Planning Commission Member and will continue to do so until the position is filled.  The Planning Commission meets occasionally on weekday evenings.  A meeting is called only if there is an issue the Planning Commission needs to consider.  The Planning Commission is made up of citizens and it fills a very important role in the community: it approves or denies Land Use applications, Site Design Reviews, and other requests under the Halsey Development Code.  To be eligible to serve on the Planning Commission, you must be registered to vote and have resided within the City of Halsey for one year.  For more information, please contact City Hall at (541) 369-2522.  You can download an application here.
The City of Halsey staff and council stand with Roseburg, Oregon and Umpqua Community College.  We share your grief for innocent lives taken and for families and a community torn by this unimaginable tragedy.  Stay strong.

Voluntary Water Conservation Lifted

The City of Halsey Voluntary Water Reduction status is lifted as of September 23, 2015.  The high water usage during the summertime warm weather is no longer affecting our water supply or curtailment. Thank you to everyone in this community who helped to reduce water usage this summer. Andy Ridinger Public Works
