Please stop spreading rumors!

There is a fire on West Brush Creek. Fire Crews are working on putting it out. Please do not speculate on the cause of the fire because it has not been determined. It is not helping anyone. It is only scaring people.

If you did not hear it from us or the fire departments, I would not trust it. Stop spreading rumors.

I saw a few people out exercising this morning on my way to work -- speed-walking, riding a bicycle. Wildfire smoke irritates the respiratory system and contains fine particles (much smaller than the ones we can see with the naked eye) that can travel deep into your lungs, causing damage and even triggering a heart attack or stroke. If you must exercise right now, something indoors might be a better option. And if you really need to get outside, try calling the Red Cross for volunteer opportunities: 541-344-5244 or 503-585-5414. Put that energy to good use.

Halsey does NOT currently have any level of evacuation order in place. Regardless, it is always good to know where you valuables are located and have an emergency plan in place.

Thank you, Brownsville.

Just off the call with the Governor's Office, major messages included head all warnings, stay out of evacuated areas. Overall, the State Fire Marshal felt they had a good day on many fires including the Holiday Farm and Santiam fires. They made good progress along the Coast. Still a major emphasis on evacuating people and life safety. The National Guard deployed air assets and troops to assist with security. The State is predicting that 405,000 people will be displaced. Oregon Health Authority is working on a plan to organize mass medical care statewide. The State should have their emergency declaration document delivered to President Trump by the first of next week. FEMA has already deployed assets and commodities for shelters in advance of the official declaration. Governor Brown felt that this will be the biggest fire and loss of life in the history of Oregon. In three days, 1,000,000 acres have burned. Annually, Oregon loses 500,000 acres. Stay safe!

The State has a wildfire resource page with additional information about the current fire situation.

Our election packets contain an overview of what responsibilities an elected position requires. If you are interested in finding out more about becoming a Council Member or Mayor, you are welcome to call City Hall and speak with one of the office staff - 541-369-2522.

Holding an elected position is doable alongside a full-time job. Meetings are usually once a month and held in the evening. There are things to read and review each month, and the option to meet with staff prior to meetings for clarification/discussion on current City happenings. The main qualification you need is a desire to find out more about Halsey and make it the best city possible. It's not a popularity contest, so new members to our community are just as welcome as those who have been here a lifetime. If you have lived full-time within City limits for at least a year and are registered to vote, you are eligible.

08/18/2020

Interested in running for Halsey City Council or Mayor? The deadline for candidate election packets is rapidly approaching - they are due by August 24 at 5 pm.

Additional information is available on our website, but the forms are not available online at this time. If you would like a packet, give us a call and we will make sure you have what you need, 541-369-2522.

Is there any local Christmas tree farms where we can take the kids to pick a tree? We just moved into the area and don’t want to drive up to Salem for a tree😬
Will the city be putting together a list of resources for people in the community? I would like to know of any places where food could be ordered online that will deliver out here. I think most people will be okay for a few weeks but if this last for months people will run out of food. Thanks!
THANK YOU FOR THE CHRISTMAS PARADE ONCE AGAIN IT WAS GREAT
