Sunday is the first day of autumn. Where did summer go? With rain falling most days through July and August it started to feel like the Pacific Northwest around here. While we can always use the rain to stave off drought conditions, most of us hope for sunny weather during the summer months.
Thankfully, the forecast calls for sunny and mild weather into next week.
Perfect weather for a cleanup day. We encourage you to spend Saturday making a difference.
Fall cleanup day begins at 9 a.m. Saturday. Organizers encourage volunteers to meet at the city parking lot located at the corner of Grand Canyon Boulevard and Railroad Avenue. Organizers will assign volunteers to areas needing attention. Free coffee and pastries will be available for all as well as free soda and water throughout the day. Volunteers are invited to a barbecue at noon.
Unusable, old appliances left outside are an eyesore for our community. Yes, they are sometimes a hassle to remove and usually involve an additional expense. Thankfully, the city of Williams and Williams Clean and Beautiful have joined forces and are offering large appliance removal - at no cost to you. Workers will pick up appliances from residences through Oct. 5. To schedule your appliance for pick up, call City Hall at 635-4451 so that a work order can be established to ensure your appliance is removed. If you want to get rid of the appliance yourself, you can haul it to the transfer station.
There is no reason not to take advantage of these free opportunities. Let's take ownership and feel proud as we continue to work together to clean up our community. We'll see you Saturday.
