 FIRE SEASON IS BEGINNING EARLY THIS YEAR HERE IN SOUTHWEST OREGON – ODF SAYS PUBLIC USE RESTRICTIONS GO INTO EFFECT ON MAY 1st 2020

 

 Help reduce the risk of fire in Gold Hill - Jackson County Fire District 3 will be providing a Biomass bin at City Hall from May 14 - 17. The bin is for clean wood debris disposal. Accepted material can range from shrub and tree limbs to pallets, wood shakes, discarded wood, construction debris, etc. No stumps or berry vines. Fire District 3 personnel will be onsite from 10-4 each of those days to answer any questions you may have about fire risk reduction, and to offer help with disposal.

 

Another way to reduce the risk of fire is to rethink your firework strategy for the 4th of July. Our city currently is at great risk for fire, let’s all do our part to keep that from happening.

 

  • In the next few months, we will be transitioning to new software in City Hall. The new software will offer many more options, including the ability to pay with a debit/credit card in City Hall. In addition to utility billing, you will also be able to pay other permits and fees online for the first time. More information coming soon!
  • City Parks will be reopening this weekend, including access to the boat ramps. Please remain vigilant and continue with your social distancing while using the parks.
  • City Hall is currently closed to the public – the drop slot is available 24 hours for utility payments. Call us for any other needs (541) 855-1525.
  • If you’d like an announcement posted either in this newsletter or on the city website, please submit it by the 25th of the preceding month.
