Teach children to use crosswalks and lights and most important look both ways before stepping into the road. Not all cars are stopping for lights.
SPRINKLER SYSTEMS: Backflow preventers are required on all sprinkler systems. If you didn’t have a test on your sprinkler system backflow preventer done last year, please have one done this year and return your report to City Hall or email it to email@example.com. This is necessary to ensure that contamination of the water supply will not happen in the event of a pressure loss to the water system. Odd numbered addresses are to be tested this year and even numbered addresses are to be tested in even numbered years. If you have an even numbered address and did not test last year, you need to be tested this year also. Businesses are required to test every year. The deadline is July 15th to avoid water services from being terminated. If you have an appointment to have your test done and it is after the 15th of July, please notify the city at firstname.lastname@example.org with the date it is scheduled and with whom. Thank you!
