Drink water, stay inside, provide water for pets, wildlife etc, check on your neighbor, pay close attention to exposure to heat.
From our Valued Partners at Waste Connections
“Looking forward to next week’s heat index I’ll bring our guys in at 5:30 am. We’ll send out a call and email blast to our customers. If we miss anyone due to a late set out, we’ll make it right with no additional charge. Please let me know if you have any concerns. Thanks in advance for helping me with the safety of our collection team”
To our residents in the City of Mosier
Do you appreciate, value, and love your Waste Collections team? This is a great opportunity to let them know! A small note or reminder of your appreciation goes a long way in the HOT HOT HOT weather driving around all day with no air conditioning!
Did you know that Waste Connections regional manager drove out from Portland in a snowstorm to meet on an overpass to provide gift cards to families in need near the holidays? Also offering boxes of food to families experiencing hard times. This leadership and dedication are what sets them apart.
I mention this because of the gratitude Mosier residents have expressed on multiple occasions in Mosier City Council meetings. Sometimes, the person “on the ground” needs to be reminded to keep pushing through in adverse conditions. Particularly in this heatwave.
Let’s try and let them know we care as they pass through our community in the severe weather conditions.
Note that this week’s Mosier City Council will include a public hearing on the proposed sale of an approximately 0.82-acre parcel of City-owned real property on Fifth Avenue. The Council proposes to sell the property for residential use, because the property no longer serves the purpose for which it was acquired and a sale will be the most beneficial use.
