Tree Planting Project

The Central Linn Elementary PTC is working with the Ford Institute Leadership Program Halsey-Tangent-Shedd class  on a tree planting project at the Central Linn Elementary School.  The plan is to plant low maintenance  trees in groupings along the western and southern areas of the Elementary School grounds in the Fall of 2015.  The trees will provide shade and shelter, improve air quality, add aesthetic value to the neighborhood, and provide ongoing educational opportunities for students. The Ford Institute Leadership Class will be raising money and writing a grant application for a matching grant from the Ford Family Foundation to fund the project.  They will also be working closely with the PTC and the Central Linn School District to design plans for the project, and to plant it. The Ford Family Foundation and Rural Development Initiatives  have brought the Ford Institute Leadership Program to the communities of Halsey, Tangent, and Shedd .  A new class will start each fall for the next four years.  The Ford Institute Leadership Program’s purpose is to promote vitality in rural communities.

Free Compost

The City has a large compost pile from the mowing done around town.  At some point this spring/ summer that compost pile will be moved out to the lagoon area to make more space on the shop lot.  Public Works has offered to deliver a load of compost to anyone who wants one inside the city limits.  If you need a load of compost for your yard or garden, please contact the City at 541-369-2522 and let us know.  We would like to move the pile by the end of June, so let us know before then if possible.

Hot Water Heater Expansion Tanks

An expansion tank can help prolong the life of your hot water heater.  When water is heated, it expands.  Because of the backflow device, that extra water cannot flow back into the source.  This expansion can put pressure on the water heater and on the rest of your plumbing system.  One way to protect your system is to install an expansion tank.The City has several expansion tanks available to folks who live in Halsey if you don’t already have one.  They usually cost about $60, and are being offered by the City at $10 each.  They will be sold one per household on a “first come, first serve” basis.  However, if you want to request additional ones you can ask to be put on a list and be called if there are extras.  Call (541) 369-2522 to arrange to get yours!
