SCOTUS Blocks Mandate For Large Employers
"But a vaccine mandate is strikingly unlike
the workplace regulations that OSHA has typically. A vaccination, after all, cannot be undone at the end of the workday. Contrary to the dissent’s contention, imposing a vaccine mandate on 84 million Americans in response to a worldwide pandemic is simply not “part of what the agency was built for.”

Being prepared can be a life saver...

The recent tragedy in NYC is the deadliest blaze in the city since 1990. The nation mourns with NYC for the reason that fire deaths and injuries are not just a big city problem, but a national problem. There have been 131 home fire fatalities reported in the U.S. so far in 2022. That's only 11 days. So what can YOU do to help keep Portland fire safe?
🔴 Have working smoke alarms in your home and workplace.
🔴 Have an escape plan with 2 ways out of every room.
🔴 Sleep with your bedroom door closed. If you are escaping a fire, close the door behind you to slow the spread of fire and smoke.
🔴 If your business had infractions on an inspection, fix the issues.
🔴 Help us spread our fire safety messages by sharing our social media posts, videos, handouts, and other fire safety materials with your family, friends, and co-workers.

Your help may save a life.

Understanding Easements, Right-Of-Ways and their affects on your property🏠🛣

• An easement is a property right (not ownership) for a permitted use of a parcel of land. Easements are non-possessory interests.

• A right-of-way is a corridor or strip of land owned by someone else (i.e. street or railroad right-of-way) and is adjacent to private property.
On developed sites and in residential neighborhoods, the property owner is responsible for the maintenance and aesthetics of yard areas within easements or rights-of way. Routine maintenance includes activities such as mowing, and sediment and vegetation removal. Maintaining drainage ditches is a necessary management function for most local units of government in suburban and rural areas. We encourage our citizens to understand their important role in helping to maintain open drainage channels and acknowledge drainage easements, as well as help to improve local habitat and water quality. Stewardship suggestions are also available. Call our office at (615) 672-3654.

Remember, often utility lines are buried within easements and rights-of-way. Easements are necessary for ongoing maintenance of utilities such as gas, water, sewer and internet. Permanent structures such as houses, sheds, fencing, pools, decks, etc. are not allowed within the easements. If you do plan any landscaping within the area, call 811 before you dig.
