Proposed Storm Water Utility & Fee
Council is declaring May as Mental Health Awareness Month in the City of Halsey. Mental Health Awareness Month began in 1949, and is in May of each year. Since launching 69 years ago, Mental Health Awareness Month Campaigns have reached millions of people through the media, events, and screenings. The goal is to bring better understanding, increased empathy, and respect for those who suffer from these debilitating illnesses.Millions of Americans live with mental health conditions, such as schizophrenia, bi-polar disorder, and major depression. In fact, studies have shown that about 1 in 5 people will experience a mental health issue in their lifetime. If you are not personally affected, chances are you love someone who is. Too often, individuals do not receive proper care, and end up in unfortunate situations.No one should suffer in silence. During Mental Health Awareness month, we should be encouraged to seek to better understand mental illness, and find ways in which we can help those who are suffering.For more information, please visit www.mentalhealth.gov
Mental Health Awareness Month
The Halsey City Council will be considering the creation of a new Storm Water Drainage Utility and the creation of a $1.00 per month Storm Water Drainage Utility Fee. Public Hearings will be held on this issue at the next two regular City Council Meetings on: Tuesday, May 8th at 7:00 pm, and Tuesday, June 12th at 7:00 pm at Halsey City Hall, 100 Halsey Street, Halsey, OR.The purpose of creating the Storm Water Drainage Utility and the Storm Water Drainage Utility Fee is to increase maintenance on the existing Storm Water Drainage system in Halsey, to provide matching funds allowing the use of Storm Water System Development Charges and possible outside funding sources, and to plan for future capital improvement projects to expand the capacity of the system. Revenues derived from the Storm Water Drainage Utility Fee would be used specifically for the costs associated with maintenance and improvement of the Storm Water Drainage system in Halsey. Costs associated with cleaning and repairing culverts and improving ditches, as well as the future upgrading of the facilities are all part of the ongoing expenses associated with the storm water drainage system. All citizens interested are encouraged to attend these meetings and provide comment or ask questions on the reason for the proposed utility and utility fee. If you have additional comments or concerns, please contact City Hall.
