Monday November 11th is Veterans Day. Please take this time to pay tribute to all American Veterans both living and deceased. Sadly, as of late, our country seems to be in constant turmoil, and it seems almost impossible to reach a consensus on any topic. One thing I know for certain is this Country and the lifestyle we enjoy as citizens of this great Country would not be possible without the sacrifices of the men and women of our armed forces. This Veterans day I encourage you to fly the flag, reflect upon the role of our armed forces and reach out to thank any veteran you may know.
Thanksgiving Day is our second big holiday this month. Living here in this beautiful city at the base of the majestic Ben Lomond Peak, I feel we have much to be thankful for. I encourage each of you to take a moment between the turkey and the pumpkin pie to reflect on what you have in your life that makes you thankful. I likewise encourage you to remember those who may be less fortunate, reach out to someone and help make their life better. Both you and the person whose life you touch will benefit from your action.
Just as a reminder, from November 15 through March 15, it is unlawful for any person to park a motor vehicle, recreational vehicle, trailer, any other vehicle, or object of any kind, on any public street or right of way while snow plows are operating or while streets are snow or ice covered.(PV ORD. 1.16.030)
Speaking of snow, please be careful driving this winter. As great a job as our Public Works employees do removing snow, sometimes mother nature can really put down the white stuff and we do live on the side of a mountain. BE SAFE!
At this season of Thanksgiving, I’m thankful for the opportunity to represent each of you. I’m thankful for all you do, and I’m thankful for you being good neighbors. I am committed to doing whatever it takes to ensure Pleasant View remains the best place to not only grow up, but the best place to grow old.
Mayor Leonard Call
