CITY CORNER by Mayor Brent Hinckley
This past weekend and all of the Round-up and Rodeo activities seems to have been a complete success! I have heard positive comments about it from all directions which can only mean that there were no real problems and everyone enjoyed themselves. The smooth flow of activities and lack of any significant problems is due to the commitment and hard work of a large group of able volunteers, and the least we can do as a community is offer a full and complete THANKS!! to them. If you know or see any of the volunteers from the Chamber of Commerce, Rodeo Association, Alpha Beta Psi, the many businesses that built floats and sponsored Queen’s candidates, the City workers that put in extra hours after a full week, or any of the other dozens of willing citizens that spent some of their time and sweat making sure that everything ran smoothly, I would encourage you to give them a big “thank you” in every way.
Looking at the weather forecasts it seems we can expect the daily temperatures for the next week to be 100 degrees with no rain in sight. One way to deal with some of that is to spend time at the City swimming pool, but if you can not get there then at least try to stay out of the sun and drink plenty of fluids. The City is continuing to have some problems with the old equipment that pumps and maintains the water supplies for the town. The system kept up with demand over the weekend, but we are worried that if our residents all water their yards too much and at the same time, or if we as a whole do not wisely monitor our water usage then we may all have a bigger problem very soon. If you need to water your yard and landscape, please follow the Water Conservation Plan to limit outdoor watering, and follow the schedule of all even numbered houses watering either on Monday, Wednesday, or Friday and all odd numbered houses watering either on Tuesday, Thursday, or Saturday. In addition we ask each water customer to water no more than once a week, and to limit evaporation by watering only before the hour of 9:00 am in the morning and after the hour of 6:00 pm in the evening. We know that our residents have responded in the past when hot and dry conditions called for good water conservation, and I hope that we can expect the same positive response this summer as we try hard to keep up with the water needs of our town.
As the many visitors to the Square and the Park this past weekend can tell you, Mason is a great hometown and seems to always be clean and neat. It is also rather green right now, but it may be that as the next few weeks bake our landscape we may need to just keep the “browned” lawns and gardens neat. The plans are to replace some of the older equipment in our water system with new and more useful monitors and controls as part of the water treatment project, so by next year some of the trouble and anxiety will be more under control. However, this year we need your help to keep the water flowing for all our residents and businesses. Mason is a great hometown whatever color is predominate at the time, but I hope that you will help us to keep it thriving and growing without spending too much time or water on the outdoors for the next couple of months.
