We have surely been blessed with an abundance of moisture this past winter. In that vein, I would like to remind everyone that all that snow in the mountain will turn to water and while a lot of it will go into the ground to recharge our aquifer, most will be coming down the hill. I want to encourage each of you to be both vigilant and prepared. Vigilant in keeping children and pets away from the swelling streams. These little creeks can turn deadly very quickly as they are literally ice cold and can become very fast moving. If you live in an area that could possibly flood or has a history of flooding, please prepare yourself. Sandbags are available at the City. Hopefully, Mother Nature will be kind and bring the water down slowly as it warms up gradually, but a sudden heat wave could prove to be very problematic.
I would like to give a shout out to our awesome snowplow drivers. What a great job they have done this year. They do such a wonderful service each and every year, but this year was extra busy and extra challenging as storm after storm pounded our City. I receive many comments and almost all of them are positive and very grateful.
Lastly, don’t forget the Easter Egg Hunt. The most thrilling two minutes of the year! Hundreds of children scurrying around the Pleasant View Park filling their baskets full of Easter treats, sure to provide them with weeks full of unbounded energy. It is Saturday, April 20th and will start promptly at 9:00 am. Don’t be late or your children or grandchildren will never forgive you. Well, at least not until next year.
I am committed to doing whatever it takes to ensure that Pleasant View remains the best place to not only grow up, but the best place to grow old.
Mayor Leonard Call
