EAB leadership award

EAB Presents Leadership Award

Congratulations Bill Striegler and the Timbers Club

The EAB recently awarded the 2017 Environmental Sustainability Award to Bill Striegler and the Timbers Club at AREDAY. Thanks to Bill, the Timbers Club is a prime example of how easy and beneficial being environmentally conscious can be. The Timbers Club realized a 55,000 kWh savings after implementing lighting upgrades in 2015, and the 5 year average energy consumption for the facility is down 13%. This not only results in energy savings, but it results in significant utility bill savings for the Timbers Club and their residents. 

We want to applaud Bill for sticking his neck out for new energy efficient technology, and for continuing to do so. Way to go, Bill!

Each year, the Environmental Advisory Board awards a local leader or business that is leading the way in environmental sustainability. Learn more about the award and the 2018 nomination process by following the link below.

Fire Ban

Stage 1 Fire Restrictions

  • No fires outside of developed recreation sites or grates.
  • No fireworks
  • No smoking except within a vehicle, building, or a barren area
  • No operating combustion engines without an approved spark-arresting device.
Thank you for your help and cooperation. Learn more, and make sure you're prepared for a wildfire by following the link below.

Road Work
