Attracting Bees and Pollinators

CPO 10 heard all about bee health and beekeeping at its August 2014 meeting. According to the USDA bee pollination is responsible for $15 billion in added crop value, particularly for specialty crops such as almonds and other nuts, berries, fruits, and vegetables. Did you know about one mouthful in three in the diet directly or indirectly benefits from honey bee pollination?

Bees need help to ensure they have a healthy habitat and diet. Find out what you can do through gardening and other actions around your home and property. If you are interested in beekeeping, resources are available. Start here with the handouts brought to CPO 10.

Transportation Project: SW Farmington Road Paving
September 22 - October 3

Paving work will take place September 22nd through October 3rd on SW Farmington Road from
SW 209th to OR Hwy 219. Roads will be open, but could be restricted to one-way traffic.

UPDATE:
Following the public hearing on June 17th, the Washington County Board of Commissioners decided to refer a proposed countywide vehicle registration fee to the voters in November.

The County is considering a $30 per year fee on vehicles owned by residents and businesses. A $17 per year fee would apply to motorcycles/mopeds. Government, school, farm, antique, special interest and recreational vehicles, in addition to vehicles owned by disabled veterans would be exempt. If approved by the voters, 60 percent of the funds would be allocated to the county for roads it maintains and 40 percent to cities for use on roads they maintain. The ordinance will also be amended to provide greater clarity on how the funds will be used if the voters approve the fee.
