Highlights for the week ending November 28, 2014 (posted 11/21/14)
Thanksgiving is less than a week away! If you are heading out to visit family and friends, make sure to plan ahead and designate a driver, take TriMet or take a taxi. Our Sheriff’s deputies are providing extra patrols on our roadways starting this weekend to ensure our roads are safe. Drive sober or get pulled over!
Help keep storm drains and streets clear! Drop off your leaves at free leaf disposal events. City of Beaverton, City of Cornelius, City of Forest Grove, City of Hillsboro and City of Tigard are all holding leaf drop-off events this month. Visit Clean Water Services’ leaf disposal website for complete details!
Sherwood residents can view their City’s curbside leaf pick-up program website for details about when crews plan to pick up leaves and their available leaf drop-off location.
If your street light is out, give us a call at 503-846-ROAD (846-7623), email email@example.com submit an online service request form.
Changing seasons is a time to step up your visibility with light-colored or fluorescent clothing and by adding reflective materials as well as lights! Be seen. Be safe.
