"Coffee and Expectations"

Mayor Frank Vander Horst invites you to join him periodically at one of our wonderful dining establishments for a cup of coffee (or tea, or soft drink) and a discussion of your expectations, hopes, and dreams for our town. Times and locations will be announced here and on our Facebook page.



The Town Code provides that Level 1 water restrictions go into effect automatically as of May 1 each year, requiring certain water conservation measures; however, in light of our current healthy water flows, in consultation with the Fire Chief and Public Works department, I have suspended those restrictions until further notice. We will closely monitor the flows and water levels in our tanks, and if mandatory restrictions become necessary, a notice will be posted at our posting locations, on the Town’s website and Facebook page, and delivered to each address.

However … in order to avoid the need to place mandatory restrictions on our water use, residents are strongly encouraged to conserve water to the greatest extent possible.  Here are some helpful tips:

Ways to Save Water Indoors

  • Check all faucets, pipes and toilets for leaks.
  • Install water saving showerheads and ultra-low-flush toilets.
  • Take shorter showers.
  • Turn off the water while brushing your teeth or shaving.
  • Fully load your dishwasher.
  • Wash full loads of clothes.

Ways to Save Water Outdoors

  • Don't over-water landscaping.
  • Water your lawn or garden early in the morning or late in evening.
  • Adjust sprinklers so that they don't water the sidewalk or street.
  • Don't water on cool, rainy or windy days.
  • Equip all hoses with shut-off nozzles.
  • Use drip irrigation systems.
  • Plant drought-tolerant or low water-use plants and grasses.
  • Place mulch around plants to reduce evaporation and discourage weeds.
  • Use a bucket instead of a hose to wash your car.
  • Use a broom rather than a hose to clean sidewalks, driveways, loading docks and parking lots.

Thank you. If everyone does their part, and the weather cooperates, we may be able to get through this season without the need for mandatory restrictions.
